Accompanying a solo exhibition at Karsten Schubert, London, the group of work features spray painted and twisted canvas on wooden stretchers. The works challenge the conventional relationship between canvas and stretcher, turning the traditional site of the painting into a sculptural field.


Reproductions of the 'Canvas Events' series (1994) are accompanied by a conversation between the artist, Hans Ulrich Obrist and Barbara Steveni, in which they discuss the artist's career as a whole.
