Double O, 2014

Dimensions: 390cm x 390cm x 50cm.

Materials: Motorcycle donut, vinyl, monitor and silent moving image loop.

Camera: Charlotte Crewe, rider: Lee.

Exhibited: The Promise, Arnolfini, Bristol.

The rider performs a donut as a perfectly shaped ‘O’ in an urban location. By rotating the motorbike around the front wheel in a continuous motion he burns a thick circular mark in rubber on the tarmac. Double O focuses on the illicit and fleeting activity of burning circular skid marks within the city and translates it through a spatial installation and video loop into an endless silent action governed by the logics of the gallery space.

Double O intervenes within Doing Things Separately Together as both a drawing and articulation of the city at the scale of 1:1.

Was Here, 2002

Dimensions: 43cm x 350cm.

Materials: Black and white emulsion paint.

Published / reviewed:

Art Monthly, 10 ¦ 2003.

Critical Architecture, Routledge, 2007.

WAS HERE appropriates the language of graffiti, translating the personal to the architectural. A white wall of a new house overlooks an area which is due to be developed for luxury housing. The text ‘WAS HERE’ is painted black on the white wall and coated or veiled in white. The text immediately provokes two questions from the passer-by, ‘who was here’ and ‘what was here’? The development of the derelict site has encapsulated WAS HERE between party walls, its presence protected but not visible.
