Surface Contents II, PICA T:BA 2015 – Installation Shots

Comprising the second part of Surface Contents (Pictures on the Moon with Teeth, TBA exhibition), gold security blankets function in iteration between their formal display as discrete objects and their use by audience members. They can appear purely as aesthetic entities removed from use. The unfinished warehouse is adaptable to art objects but left alone might it be a possible squat where the need for warmth would be primary? The blankets highlight the body but also can define the movements of a group of bodies. In this way they are linked to the gold particles just at a different scale.
