Dortmund Kunstverein, June 2016

'Eurocopter EC135' was an installation of drawings, sculpture and performance which knoted together the murder of Gianni Versace, police helicopters and the red marble clad lobby of Dortmund's 'Unique Hotel'.

The exhibition asked how surface and texture can transmit narrative, and how narrative can metamorphose matter into new forms, make history haptic, tangible and malleable. The borders of the works' own categories were flexed, permeated, or morphed into breathable membranes. Paintings become photographs, photographs become sculptures, sculptures become props in a performance which scrambled and re-scrambled these categories.
