The Royaly Magestic Messers...
MESSENGERS OF HER MAJESTY’S ROYAL COSMIC EMPIRE
1st October - 31st October 2009
Concrete Hermit Gallery
5a Club Row, London, E1 6JX
Robert Rubbish and Chris Bianchi (of LE GUN magazine and Bare Bones tabloid) bring you a unique collaboration. They will be transforming the Concrete Hermit gallery into an interstellar installation that coincides with the 40 year anniversary of the first man on the moon. They will be showing their cosmic collections of curiosities, exhibiting their own individual artworks as well as collaborative paintings, drawings and assemblages made specifically for the show. The pair take their inspirations from the time they spent creating and running a modern day curiosity shop in Hackney in 2007 as well as many other sources including the films of Alejandro Jodorowsky, space rock, dipsomania, the occult, magic, Catholicism, James Ensor, chemical memories, psychedelic experiences, death and Belgium. The exhibition will also have special events programmed including a requiem mass on the last day: Halloween.
