'Revelations' was a multi-faceted project that took place Sep-Dec 2016. It included two major solo shows, one being an Artangel commission, a solo presentation at Start Art Fair, a public work in collaboration with the I-70 Sign Show in Missouri, a public work as part of the BAS8 Associate Programme in Southampton, a collaboration with Jon Gower in the pages of CCQ Magazine, the production of a plectrum used by Joey Z from Life of Agony on their US/European tour and the publishing of a book that surveyed over 20 years of practice.
Revelations: The Poison of Free Thought Part I - Syson Gallery/Start Art Fair.
Part 1 of this project was a solo installation at Start Art Fair, followed by the re-exhibition of this work at Syson Gallery, expanded out in to a larger survey.
Plectrum for Joey Z, Life of Agony
300 of this plectrum were produced and used by Joey Z through the latter part of 2016, passing through his hand to fans all over the world. The skull is Joey Z's usual artwork, so the intervention came in the message written in Anglo-Saxon runes on the other side.
