Michael Taussig

… the images that inhabit time – the recursive time of rereading – are historical, in a peculiar way. Being recursive, they flow with time yet also arrest it… They are allegories punched out of time waiting… Chronology is grasped and analyzed in a spatial image…

Residency at London Luton Airport

I have been given a really great opportunity to have a Drawing Residency at London Luton Airport. The residency will last approximately 3 months and I will be visiting the airport as regularly as I can. I have been given access to all areas of the airport (supervised) of course. 

These types of spaces have always interested me - those which seem so familiar and yet so alien. You feel like I stranger. Here are some of the sketchbook drawings I have been working on so far. The Residency will culminate in an exhibition at the Airport.
