Weds 19th Nov: "The Fractured & The Feline" by Quentin Jones with Robert Storey

Two of my favourite artists (and people) have once again collaborated and this time on an exhibition as a retrospective of Quentin's work and their previous joint projects.  Quentin's archive of illustration and animation has been made into a 3D spatial showcase by art-director Storey to bring to life her signature Surrealist squiggle style.  As you move around the maze of mirrored walls it feels as if you've stepped into one of their fashion films with reflections of both your own body and their body of work all intersecting thru cut-out sections in the divisions.  Robert wanted to involve the visitor in viewing Quentin's work beyond the regular gallery experience and has turned the Multi-Storey Car Park space into a set from their imaginary worlds.  Within this cavernous dimension is also a canteen to dine upon Storey's furniture and feast on a menu by Jones' sister's catering company "TART".  If that's not enough, The Vinyl Factory have also installed a stand selling a series of screen-prints as limited editions from the show to take a piece of the cut-in-paste puzzle home with you............
