Commentary

In 2012 whilst on a residency at Hotel Maria Kapel, Hoorn (NL) Harry Meadley and I carried out a duel with artworks. Guided by a found duelling rule book, we 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 our attempts to finish the fight and silence each other.

In 2014 the Code Duello exhibition at Loods 6 marked a return to the source material with the full chain of works actualised and installed in sequence. Visitors to the bagagehal were invited to experience the duel as it originally unfolded, with each work conjoined to the next, creating one super work.
