Black White Swan Babies

For the group show “You are OK”, I was invited by curator David Lindberg to address the textured, graffiti covered walls of the Y-Helling exhibition space in Amsterdam. The show space is a 100 year+ old cement building, which has a war bunker-like atmosphere. I made small acrylic and gouache paintings of C130 bomber planes emitting their ghostly decoy flare smoke. I then specifically chose the wall pictured in this installation shot, and randomly placed these small paintings in a manner that suggested a mini salon hanging amidst chaos.
