Showing: Candice Tripp & Wes Walker – “I’M NEVER SHOPPING HERE AGAIN!” @ Black Rat Projects

On view earlier this month at the Black Rat Projects in London was an interesting collaborative show from Candice Tripp (interviewed) and Giles Walker (known for his immersive robotic installations). IʼM NEVER SHOPPING HERE AGAIN included the surreal, dark paintings & sculptural pieces from Tripp as well as some animatronic magic from Walker.
