Commentary

In 2012 whilst on a residency at Hotel Maria Kapel, Hoorn (NL) Harry Meadley and Alex Farrar carried out a duel with artworks. Guided by a found duelling rule book, they sealed themselves inside a purpose built Render Room, and took it in turns to call out an artwork, or in some cases, progression of artworks in retaliation to each of their attempts to finish the fight and silence the other.

Designed by Johannes Breyer, the Code Duello exhibition catalogue supplements the original publication with documentation of the actualisation of the duel between Alex Farrar and Harry Meadley as presented in Loods 6, Amsterdam, 13 – 23 February 2014. The book was produced as part of both artists’ independent attempts at completing The Kippenberger Challenge.
