‘When I ?rst wrote the words ‘Who Cares Wins’, they were about caring for people with dementia – speci?cally my dad; and at the time the phrase worked like a 5 second pep talk to myself… to keep caring, because really – that’s all I could do… sitting here in my ?at – nursing (mercifully mild) symptoms of COVID-19, I see from the lowering sun outside, it’s been a while since I wrote that last line… this inertia maybe a symptom of COVID-19, but it may also be that then – as now! Caring is all we can do… and Caring for the Carers… is I imagine one of the ways we can do this best.’

– Harland Miller 2020

This limited edition print is from Miller’s dust jacket series in which the artist works with books as still lifes or three-dimensional objects with their own unknown but personal history of being ‘out there’ in the world; of having been read, obviously, but also shared, gifted, re-sold, discarded, cherished, forgotten, re-found and even rebound. While Miller conjures these exclusive histories in the ‘beaten-up’ depiction of the books, he also uses his own titles to further qualify this. In this instance, it is those very aspects of being loved, shared, repaired, that the title Who Cares Wins evokes.
