Keith Coventry (b. 1958)



This plastic cast of a Ventolin inhaler is part of a series of works Coventry created on the themes of crack cocaine and drug addiction. The inhaler is generally considered as a life saver, giving breath, but on closer inspection one notices that this common medicinal aid has been adapted for the inhalation of crack cocaine. Inhaler was commissioned by the Multiple Store and was purchased with support from The Wellcome Trust.
