BLIND LIGHT, THE HAYWARD GALLERY, LONDON, ENGLAND, 2007

17 May - 19 August 2007

Curated by Ralph Rugoff and Jacky Klein, BLIND LIGHTexplored ways in which we orientate ourselves spatially, how we react when disorientated, and how we relate to architecture and the built environment. The exhibition included a series of new installations, alongside a selection of previous work, and extended beyond the gallery walls with EVENT HORIZON, 31 figures placed on rooftops and public walkways in central London.
