This is the exhibition I did at UKS this february as a part of their “THE OUTSKIRTS” program this spring.

This is part three of my “The Comic Book Backfire Project
“Everything included” could be the title of the show as it had all my favorite desires included… well, almost.
The installation at UKS also functioned as a stage where Bastard Child, the masked man, wearing his heart upon his sleeve, improvised sound all 4 days the exhibition lasted. Thank you Mr BC!
C(l)ues and themes:
– A game never played.
– The Seven Seas.
– Vanishing Point.
– Slowly calculating the risk of being banal.
– Narcomedusa 1083.
– And finally Blue Dog. (He first showed up at “Frame, Green Fields and The Devil” in my last exhibition.
(He is the blue shiny fly you will find if you keep looking).
