Description

The ambience of his exhibition was due in part to his experience of two close but distinct cultures, one more structured and tolerantly repressive than its messier neighbour. The photographic images used by Kirby were shot in various places in Europe and all of them were ambiguous and haunting in some way (a strangely-skirted aluminium caravan with small square windows, a frosted window in a cheap hotel, an urban residential alleyway in the process of demolition).

Description

This work, first exhibited in 1985, has been seen in a number of variations, as has its companion work, to E.Q.U.I.V.A.L.E.N.C.E. or perhaps more precisely its double, A.P.O.R.I.A., which also spells itself out across the wall.
