Michael Stevenson

The Gift of Critical Insight

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.

Published on the occasion of Stevenson’s exhibitions at Portikus, Frankfurt, and Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporáneo, Mexico City in 2012.
