Neon Dracula
Danske Grafikeres hus, Copenhagen, DK. 2018.

Late capitalist society is haunted by a malicious spectre. It stalks the brightly lit halls of high finance, pulling packs of wolves & ashes from its toxic flesh. This multiform shapeshifting horror consumes & devours and vomits up amputated bodies for work; where the dead employ the living, and humans turn into things. Outside, it’s night in the financial streets, and the claws claws claws are out.

The exhibition is a bastardization of Bram Stokers horror classic, reimagined as a graphic novel in an expanded field, consisting of drawings and woven tapestries. These unfolds a neo-gothic tale of investment banks and real-estate speculation, monsters and surplus value, vampires, capital, and motorized undead labour, digesting the living as a necrotic metabolism.
