Ludo - Metamorphosis Exhibition

Drawn with the precision of botanical illustrations, Ludo's sociological imagery and malevolent creatures are as elegant as they are fierce. Hailing from France, Ludo has been creating attention around industry-fueled consumer culture for over a decade. Seamlessly fusing nature's wondrous species with its man-made destructive counterparts, these works intend to jolt us out of a longstanding collective denial: despite repeated natural disasters, we refuse to acknowledge our own fragile state. Ludo's resulting quasi-mutant images so effortlessly evoke contemporary creative canons that they might almost go unnoticed, underscoring the impact of ‘commercial propaganda’ on both taste and decency.

For his first London solo exhibition, Ludo's transmutations are an accumulation of new works spanning scultpure, drawing, and print.  This exhibition also heralds the international launch of a 72-page full colour book, OPUS #23, with an Introduction by Marc & Sara Schiller of Wooster Collective.  A limited 25 signed copies will be available for sale during the exhibition. 

The show opens with a private view on the 9th September 2011 from 7pm. The exhibition will then run at the gallery until the 7th October 2011.
