Collishaw’s glass sculptures, the ‘Innercity Inhalers’, are replicas of plastic smoking bongs used by improvising hedonists the world over. Debased interpretations of Marcel Duchamp’s ‘Air de Paris’, these works address the polluting, but also mind expanding effects of inner city air. One does not have to light the bong in order to get the desired effect - the visual distortion taking place when looking through the translucently coloured and partially melted bongs is a sensation not dissimilar to the perceptual disorientation of the drug smoker.
The ‘Last Meal on Death Row’ prints depict carefully arranged still-lives of the meals chosen by American death row prisoners on the last day before their execution.
