Gesture Cut in Window – Hot Mess at D11 @ Docklands

Exhibition, Gesture, Installation, Site Specific, Vinyl

For quite some time, I’ve been pondering the possibilities of installing work onto glass, thus having no visual barrier between the inside and the outside, but also approaching it as two-sided depending on the site.  I was pleased to be included in a recent group show at D11 @ Docklands, an ARI (Artist Run Space).

Applying large sheets of vinyl to glass without leaving creases and bubbles behind can be incredibly difficult.  Using a water sprayer liberally (very liberally) usually does the trick, but it’s still very hard especially if you’re doing it with only one pair of hands as I was.  So, like any awesome person with lactic acid flooding their arms held aloft, I enlisted the help of my head on more than one occasion.  Quite the sight, I’m sure.

Here are a few documentation photos of my work on the glass, from within and without, plus a few installation shots which include some other work of the other artists in the show.  (Remarkably difficult to photograph into the sunlight, but I had a crack).
