Third Story

In effort to curate site-specifically, Until We Have A Helicopter addressed Back Gallery Project’s unusual third floor location by inviting artists to create works for the exhibition that would enter the gallery through its third story window without the use of devices external to the work.

Works by Cedric Bomford, Instant Coffee, Michael Drebert, Mark Dudiak, Suzanne Nagy, Nicole & Ryan, Ian Skedd, and Kika Thorne dealt with the vertical challenge in a variety of ways without compromising their usual practices. By incorporating helium balloons, protective packaging, heaving line, or a slingshot, the artists were able to participate in the exhibition by functionalizing their artwork.
