Friday 26th October: Trojan, Works on Paper at The ICA

The ICA are fantastic at continuing the legacy of Leigh Bowery for future generations to witness his work and world with reoccurring exhibitions and events ( Sunshine: One Day Tribute to Leigh Bowery at The ICA ).  Just at the moment there is a dedicated space exhibiting the artwork of his friend and muse Trojan.   One of the walls has been papered with Star Trek pattern mimicking their original flat interior which became the backdrop for outffit snapshots which are also on display via photo albums leant by John Maybury and Sue Tilley.  It is really incredible that these examples are from a body of work all produced before his death, aged just 20 - for this reason I have also included a clip of Michael Clark's "Hail The New Puritans" for which he designed the set.
