Exhibition News: La Petite Muerte

"There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can control the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity. For the next hour, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. We repeat: there is nothing wrong with your television set. You are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to - The Outer Limits."

La Petite Muerte, a group show exploring notions of mortality, sex, death and rituals in celebration of Mexican Day of the Dead opens tonight at Drawers Gallery, London E8. I will be showing the above work, a new drawing made for the exhibition. For more information about the exhibition see:
