"What is water, he mistakes for the body'
Ovid, Metamorphoses

Shown: Staatliche Kunsthalle, Baden-Baden; the Wilhelm-Hack-Museum, Ludwigshafen am Rhein; Thaddaeus Ropac Gallery in Paris; including the Brandenburg State Museum in Cottbus; KW Institute for Contemporary Art; Künstlerhaus Bethanien - KB; Eigen & Art in Berlin, Germany and with the late Annie Herron, Gallery Black & Herron, in New York City

It was also shown in the "Art Exchange Show", an alternative art fair orchestrated by 33 innovative NYC dealers--some without a permanent gallery space brought life back into a two-block dead-zone of empty and near-empty office buildings on Wall Street. On the entire floor Bill Arning brought together 50 artists in an exhibition entitled, "The Most Important Thing in the World."
"The Art Exchange" by Germaine Keller. It was a spectacular event.
