Gallery Nucleus is having a tribute show for the 30th Anniversary of Labyrinth
. The show is a celebration of the cult classic film and is in memory of David Bowie. It opens September 17th at 7pm.
A wide variety of artists are contributing works inspired by the film and Henson’s truly amazing puppets. It promises to be a very interesting show.
I always love seeing artists contribute work along a single theme. They are a great way of discovering new interpretations of a familiar story. They let us see the subject again, but now through the eyes of someone else who also loved it but may have taken something entirely different away from it when they first experienced it. It might reveal to us a way of looking at it we never considered, or might simply remind us why we loved it in the first place.
Here is a small selection of some of the works already finished for the show:
“None May Pass” by Annie Stegg Gerard
“Ludo” by Cuddly Rigor-Mortis
“Ludo” By Cory Godbey
“Tally Ho!” by Heather Franzen
Goblin’s Bane by Justin Gerard
