GOLD SERIES (2008) (2001)
GOLD FOR DEPTFORD (2008 London) received the Macdonald Egan Award 2008 (commissioned by Deptford X )
A magical re- distribution of meaning took place when foreign investment turned street rubbish into gold. All gold was displayed on the bar counter of the Deptford Arms Pub. On the last Sunday of Deptford X all gilded items were put back onto the streets – ready for a lucky passer-by.
The first incarnation of gold-x-change was commissioned by Beral Madra of BM Contemporary Art, Istanbul, during the 1997 Istanbul Biennale. See http://www.bmsuma.com/.
GOLD FOR EVERY BODY (2001, Rio de Janeiro) The Brazil nut was re-imported in gold to its country of origin: Brazil
Trading and cultural exchange took place at Funarte, Ministry of Culture (above) Parque Lage, Galeria Capacete and Bar de Minero, Santa Teresa.
