Self organised solo exhibitions seem to be a popular way of showcasing your art here in the UK over recent times, and the latest AM has got wind of is “Altered State” by Mantis this Thursday night. This has the makings of something a little different though, as Mantis is staging his exhibition in the disused Lord Napier pub in Hackey Wick over the course of one weekend.
New works on show will include paintings, sculpture and small scale prints. The concept behind the prints sounds interesting, as they will be available in sets of three, and will be selected by the spin of the reels on a modified fruit machine. How much more site-specific can you get? Take a look at some further preview images from Mantis and details of the exhibition after the jump.
Thursday 18th November: RSVP preview 4-6PM, public view from 6-9PM
Friday 19th November: Viewing on appointment only.
Saturday 20th November: Open all day to the public from 11AM- 8:30PM, with a closing party on Saturday night with live music from 8-10:30PM with two of the artists favorite local bands.
