A Redchurch Street gallery collaboration with artist and curator Stuart Semple that’s linked to Shoreditch House was certainly an inspired spin off for the preppy Jack Wills brand and more so in that it’s morphed into an entirely credible addition to the east London scene.
Opening at the Aubin Gallery tomorrow is Legends II, the new solo exhibition from Adham Faramawy, Slade Art graduate linked to the infamous !WOWOW! collective which boasts Gareth Pugh as an alumnus and is famed for performance art and raves – notably one attended by Lauren Bush with two CIA bodyguards in tow!
In Legends, Faramawy cites influences diverse as body building guru, Charles Altas and legendary producer Hype Williams and the exhibition sees a mix of sculpture, screen prints and digital video whereby the artist challenges the concept of linear storytelling and reinvents the oral traditions of Ancient Greece and Egypt at the heart of our aesthetic lineage.
Tomorrow until 20 February
