Art is now a speculative commodity, welcome to your Gallery/Bank.

The Russian Art experiments of 1917 and the work and life of Vladimir Tatlin were a strong influence. I soon realised the importance of hand held artworks which are quietly experienced on a one to one basis. Works containing pages of graphics that can be opened and closed, and experienced finally through memory not by possession or continuous display became my direction. The primary experience of these hand held personal structures has continued into the Tatlin Trolley and continuing construction of steel books.

My Personal Structures installation shows Tatlin’s Trolley arriving amid a series of eight ATMs (Automatic Teller Machines), with steel books of mixed media confined within glass cabinets. The Trolley has moved from the past and arrived in the present. Often today when we arrive after a journey we are first met by the sight of a bank of ATMs arranged before us. These stripped down cash machines in the installation hold examples of art that are now treated as a trade-able commodity, isolated and removed, critiqued only for their cash value.

The works are viewed but out of reach, The forms used are based on real time structures we use each day.

I consider it important to use art to examine visual arts role in society, in particular at such a central exhibition as the Venice Biennale.

Are we the new mint or the new banks?

Even to display our work requires renting space at considerable costs.

All donations will go towards rental space at the Palazzo Bembo, construction and transport. I am providing half the costs and personal expenditure, airfares, accommodation and food.

Thank you.
