Press Release

Dan Gunn is pleased to announce the second solo exhibition by Musa paradisiaca at the gallery.

Recently we met a group of monoplane pilots at a small private aerodrome. They usually gather there to fly and to watch others fly.

On this occasion, one of them was already in the air while the others on the ground were watching him.

The most experienced one was giving a lesson on why aeroplanes fall from the sky / how to escape from aircraft emergencies / when a pilot

wishes to become the aeroplane / when an aeroplane wishes to become the ground.

At the same time, the airborne pilot tried repeated landings, without success.

Suddenly, the whole body of the speaking pilot was transformed and we stopped hearing him. Where once there had been flesh and bones,

now there was metal and glass.

Eventually, the pilot had to quit and try landing at the next aerodrome.
