Produced on the occasion of Michael Stevenson’s 2012 exhibitions at Portikus, Frankfurt and Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporáneo, Mexico City.
A plane is lodged in the Portikus attic to be seen across the river. In keeping with Stevenson’s commitment to producing objects that animate historical narratives, often as replicas, facsimiles or architectural re-constructions, the object will be transformed into an image through the very fragile and the most minute effects of optical lenses and mirrors, so that it appears in the main exhibition space.
With texts from Roberto Bolaño, Giovanni Intra, José de Jesús Martínez, Marilyn Strathern, Michael Taussig, Laura Preston, Mark von Schlegell & Jan Verwoert
