Meg Cranston - Rock Bottom
3 June—23 July 2005
Galerie Michael Janssen, Cologne

Galerie Michael Janssen presents a new floor installation by artist Meg Cranston.

The work titled Rock Bottom is a giant paper collage that covers the entire gallery floor. Like the ancient floors of the Romans or in Pompei, Cranston uses the floor as a place to commemorate history – in this case the recent history of the music industry. The floor includes 750 photographs of musical groups currently being promoted by the five major record companies.

Cranston states, `I like floors as a place to present information. Like in other works I’ve done, I present a quantity that allows you to make a judgement. In Rock Bottom everybody is treated the same. David Bowie and the death metal band, Cradle of Flith, are side by side. It is an equal opportunity history.’ Rock Bottom is her first solo-exhibition at Gallery Michael Janssen.
