2011

I made this installation for the LAB11 exhibition in Lulea, Sweden. I combined a wall and floor painting, a painting on canvas and objects. Baker was a squirrel monkey sent to space 1959, aboard an Army Jupiter missile and Arabella was a spider sent to space 1973 on one of the last Apollo flights. This work is in conjunction with a comic I drew about Baker and Arabella in space called ‚the black whole’.
