“I’ve never seen anything like this,” was one response to DEAD PEOPLE ON HOLIDAY. You have, but only if you’ve a long memory.
A London exhibition is opening on 12 April, and it’s a panorama of sumptuous digital imagery and the rich, resounding testimony of a true Outsider writer. A new book, from which the show takes its cue, represents the first fusion of visionary art and visionary poetry since William Blake in the 19th Century. “Visually stunning,” this work has been called: and its writing has been compared in richness to that of the English metaphysical poet John Donne.
The exhibition co-incides with the release of an already published book in ebook form, making it available to a whole new audience at the lowest possible price.
PRIVATE VIEW: Wednesday 11 April 2012, 5-7pm. You’re invited, but please RSVP if you’d like to come: 020 7848 0873 or firstname.lastname@example.org
