For his much-noticed contribution to the exhibition “Skulptur Projekte Münster 07” Kelley erected a ‘petting zoo’ near the station, at the centre of which stood the solidified biblical figure of Lot’s wife, whose ‘forbidden’ glance back to the burning cities of Sodom and Gomorrha turned her into a pillar of salt. Throughout the exhibition the statue was used as a salt lick for the cows, goats, donkeys and pigs in the petting zoo, so that gradually, its form began to change. It is with direct reference to this work that Kelley conceived his special edition for TEXTE ZUR KUNST.
