Vanessa Billy works with a variety of materials to create simple assemblages t hat p rovoke c ontradictory a ssociations. H er work is concerned with the physicality of materials and the sensations evoked by par ticular colours, textures and forms. Black rubber puddles droop over stone stairs, while wooden rainbows spring from lumps of concrete and thin strips of aluminium balance precariously against white washed walls.

His humorous Phone Card Paintings project consisted of original oil p aintings of kitsch motifs found on pre- paid phone card s, which the ar tist collected in his neighbourhood of Jackson Heights, Queens, but with an internal scratch off code that en ables the recipient to call his or her famil y anywhere in the world.

In doing so there is a hope that the ar tist can pose debate or shifts in the settings ar t is commonly shown and viewed. I nominated Jasmina for the quality of the questions in her work.
She presents the fetish of the experience. My work poses a parallel to the existing territorial marking of the traveller spectator and creates an architectonical framework which interrupts the normal flow of events and enhances the dialogue with the casual passer -by a faux tourist. Space hybridisation takes place through site-specific interventions which through employment of personal poetics reconsider the current state of cultural re-branding.
The focus of my engagement is not the packaged Exotic based on geopolitical reality of a territory , but the Exotic non defined in terms of its spatial and temporal factuality.
