David Blandy: Passage of the Soul
Bradninch Place, Gandy Street, Exeter
3 February - 17 March
David Blandy: Passage of the Soul brings together several recent works that explore this ongoing quest, as enacted by a cast of alter-egos that stem from the artist’s passions for kung fu, soul, hip hop and Japanese manga.
The exhibition will include Hiroshima inspired video and installation Child of the Atom; Duels & Dualities: Battle of the Soul, a hacked beat ‘em up arcade game which pits Blandy’s back catalogue of alter-egos against each other in a traditional 2D fighting arena; and the first part of a new, episodic animation Anjin.
To coincide with the exhibition at Phoenix Exeter, Animate Projects is delighted to present Blandy's newest work Anjin online at animateprojects.org in February.
David Blandy: Passage of the Soul is produced in association with Animate Projects and Zabludowicz Collection.
