Artist Leaps On To The Gallery Wall, 2008

Club Row, London

This was my first attempt to make ‘wall art’ in a gallery. Rather than hang a framed work, I decided to ‘be’ the artwork myself by leaping onto the gallery wall. Using a spring-ramp and wearing a daredevil stuntman’s protective clothing to soften my fall, I tore up the ramp at full sprint to leap two metres, spreading myself to land SPLAT against the Gallery wall.
