The Fraud and Hope

Commissioned by the OK Center for Contemporary Art in Linz, Austria. The Fraud and Hope depicts a paradoxical abyss suspended several stories above street level. This dark vortex opens up new spaces of thought for the viewer. 

The work forms a key part of the Hohenrausch 2018 exhibition at the OK Center, a curated programme centred around water and it’s properties as an amorphous, volatile, and foreign element for those confined to the land.  The Fraud and Hope is the centrepiece of the Hohenrausch circuit of walkways, bridges and stairs, spaces, attics, and the vast roof landscape high above Linz.
