We managed to get a glimpse of The Unknown Room at Red gallery. This installation was put together to coincide with Close Eyes to Exit, an exhibition at Red Gallery in London (2nd – 18th April) which celebrates the launch of the fifth issue of LE GUN as well as number 6 of its sister publication: BARE BONES.
Le Gun and Bare Bones are two independently published paper funded entirely by its contributors. No editorial or commercial restraints, you and I with ideas can contribute and your work may get featured in their next show.
The Unknown Room stands right in a middle of the first room on the right when you get into the gallery and you get thge feeling that you are up for some bizarre and quirkiness but this would not surprise RED gallery regulars.
Luckily, a massive help to understand what you are looking at is right there on the wall – the briefcase of a certain George Melly was randomly find in a basement and its contents were right there on display. No more needed to be said, a quick spin round and I was looking at my first skull and tramp juice bottle.
