hand-printed black and white analogue prints on Ilford Multigrade Pearl paper, marble, graphite, steel, stainless steel, polished brass
Annet Gelink Gallery, Amsterdam, 7 June – 12 July 2014
Installation of a series of metal sculptures referencing economic trends, mounted to platforms carpeted in a gradient from black to grey. The gradient continues in a wall painting, inspired by a Herbert Bayer design for a cinema, which moves from yellow to red. These colours are used on the frames of a photographic triptych, in which the image of a hand with fingers restrained by a cable tie are repeated three times, each hand-printed photo exposed longer than the previous, resulting in another gradient. In a second scene, a series of marble works based on various tyre forms, congregate in groups, some fallen, some wedged upright. Lines of text drawn in graphite criss-cross them with quotations from anti-austerity protestors and others responding to the Mediterranean economic crisis.
