dc.description.abstractHK was a solo exhibition commissioned by Tramway, Glasgow. The central component of the exhibition was the words “HEROIN KILLS” presented as six metre high sculptural forms. This word-sculpture was situated within both the context of Glasgow, as a city with a reputation for heroin abuse, and the context of Tramway, as a gallery with a reputation for international contemporary art. As such, HK revealed assumptions behind accepted notions of socially engaged art practice, questioning who such art projects are for and how they are expected to function. The Tramway commission was the starting point for the ongoing HK project in which the letters “HEROIN KILLS” have been re-presented in different forms and contexts. HK necklace commissioned for the Scottish presentation at the 2003 Venice Biennale. transformed the word-sculpture into an item of jewellery worn by a number of invited hosts during the opening week of the Biennale.en
