When the verb is modified, we usually have to place the object in front the verb.
And to notify the listener that the object is in front od the verb and not behind it, we use one special grammar word. Which one?
关 /guān/ means TO CLOSE, but it is also part of the word A RELATIONSHIP 关系 /guānxi/.
When I showed this animation to my grandmother – very talented and in some areas quite well known sculptress and painter (her name is Otilie Suterova) – she said that it is extremely exciting how the character actually looks like a relationship.

I’m happy to present it here because she has had a very big influence on me, I respect her a lot and it’s a pleasure to show her work to you.
