the exhibition




Relocating the Remains is a mixed media exhibition initially developed and staged at the Gulbenkian Gallery, The Royal College of Art, London, in August 1997, and is currently touring internationally. It is comprised of three large-scale digital installations and a number of smaller lightbox based pieces.

In the installations, Piper revisits a number of themes which have informed his practice during the last ten years. UnRecorded Histories examines the gaps and omissions in the historical narratives of colonialism. UnClassified investigates the impact of new technologies on surveillance and policing in the modern city. Another Arena recreates the stadium and presents the spectacle of sport as a terrain where definitions of race and nation are contested.

The Exhibition will travel to the New Museum, New York in July 1999, and to the National Gallery of Canada in December 1999.
