Usually Im not a fan of places whose names ought to start with a C but instead, presumably in order to appear cute or quirky, start with a K... but, because I am a big fan of Malika Favre, Im willing to forgive the Kemistry Gallery this offense, as theyre about to play host to her newest exhibit, Hide & Seek, from the 6th to the 29th of September. For the prints in this show, Favre used patterns seen in mundane and repetitive architecture to create what she calls an Optical Experiment. It probably wont be as sexy as some of her previous work (you may remember her racy cover-design for the Kama Sutra, which I posted about some months ago) but it does star an intriguing and sophisticated woman, who hides from the viewer amongst the different patterns. So flirty. Check out the teaser trailer:
I hope I can get to london while its still showing!
