Thurs 7th Oct: "Last Drawings" by Christopher Nemeth

“LAST DRAWINGS” by CHRISTOPHER NEMETH is an exhibition as a part of the ongoing celebration of the life of designer and artist Christopher Nemeth 1959 - 2010. His daughters and friends have put together some of his "LAST DRAWINGS" - a few of the things he had been putting away in his secret drawers and folios. They are his life - obsessive, honest and original.
Amongst the framed pencil drawings hang some of his garments and accessories which you can get close to see in the intimate space of
Primitive Gallery
. A beautiful black and white portrait is displayed alongside a compilation of film clips that document times and places of Nemeth's surroundings / friends and collaborators. Here I have filmed a little snap of a Mark Lebon documentary reel featuring his son Tyrone and Judy Blame. (The photo at the bottom of this post is part of a page from an i-D shoot of a Christopher Nemeth cotton sellotape shirt smock styled by Judy - a snap I found this morning - not part of the exhibition!
