Small folded document, 4 panels/Ikon Gallery brochure, June - August 1994

Several exhibitions featured, inluding Truth, Dare, Double-Dare… Relevant brochure text as follows: “Rose Finn-Felcey and Donald G Rodney. 4 June - 16 July 1994. Rose Finn-Kelcey is well known for recent installations which explore the material and spiritual limits of our environment. Donald G Rodney has contributed work to several exhibitions dealing with the themes of race and sexual politics. Truth, Dare, Double-Dare… brings together a major installation by each of the artists and a poignant new collabortative work. Rose Finn-Kelcey’s The Royal Box - a remarkable, bone-chilling room of ice - invites viewers to experience art in an unexpected way. Donald G Rodney’s Visceral Canker uses the coat of arms of Sir John Hawkins and Queen Elizabeth I, bound together by a tube of the artist’s blood, to explore issues of heredity and slavery. From these two distinctive approaches, the artists have embarked on a daring joint venture. The resulting sound installation is a raw and compelling exploration of the intense and often painful process of collaboration.”
