I supported my good friend Ranieri Spina with his first solo installation at the excellent Firstsite, Colchester as part of the We; You, Me exhibition that ran from 13 October to 16 November 2017.

Ranieri’s piece ‘Heroes Talk’ was a playful look at the role of the artist shown through a series of constructed and carefully composed components made entirely from toys.

Ranieri and I played the toys along with some guitar and other objects on the opening of the event; the recording of our performance was then played back throughout the rest of the run and accompanied the table of toys and objects, which was perfectly preserved from the performance.
