Toxic Colour Catologue publication 2007

The exhibition Toxic Colour was a group exhibition of twenty five artists who were challenged to submit entries based on the exhibitions theme. The theme of the exhibition was created and juried by Martin Ball Associate Professor of Kent State University U.S.A. His group exhibitions include the first British Art Show and The Presence of Painting a survey of thirty years of British abstraction. In addition to lecturing internationally, he has written and curated exhibitions on contemporary painting.

He states that recent developments in modern printing techniques, injection moulding and digital imaging have expanded our idea of colour. Colour aesthetic is now no longer driven by phenomenological considerations but can be manipulated by any purpose. It is no longer experienced as natural but is now highly mediated. Toxic Colour is an opportunity to explore how artists are responding to these developments.

THE Last BOOK 2007

The premise of the project is that book based culture is coming to end. New technologies have introduced cultural mutations by transferring information to television and the internet. The Last Book will serve as a time caspsule and leave a document and testament of our time, as well as a stimulus for a possible reactivation of culture in case of disappearance by negligence castastrophe or conflagration.

The book will be exhibited as an installation at the entrance of the Museum of the National Library of Spain in Madrid.
