Summary

Renowned for his sculptural installations and video works that push everyday objects and situations to absurd ends, Roman Signer's latest commission uses the kayak - a longstanding symbol and form in his work for three decades. Accompanying Signer's exhibition in the Curve, Barbican, London (4 March-31 May 2015), this volume documents the transformative quality of the artist's playful and surreal approach. Specifically made for the installation, the kayak moves through the Curve towed by a rope suspended from the ceiling, navigating the 90-metre long gallery as if moving through a canal. Accompanying installation views, related work and an interview with the artist by David Signer, an essay by Rachel Withers explores the multiple facets of his innovative practice through his on-going interest in this object. This title inaugurates a new publication series by Barbican Art Gallery and Ridinghouse that focuses on the Curve exhibition programme.
