Paul Howard, 'Restoration', 2005, still from animated film
Print launch and animated works
The studio has supported artist Paul Howard to produce a limited
edition print of his work 'Restoration', inspired by Holbein's
painting 'The Ambassadors', which the artist initially developed
during a LabCulture residency. The print is showing alongside
'Restoration' a 4 minute silent film at:
Muse | 269 Portobello Road | London | W11 1LR
4 -16 July
12 noon - 10 pm.
Paul Howard comments: "This piece is borne out of Holbein's
Ambassadors‚. A contemporary reworking of this iconic image is
re-constructed in terms of the tourist gaze, which refers in part to
the scopic-drive and its mechanisms of desire. Holbein‚s image insists
on the discordant harmony of a globalised and cartographic vision. How
far the objects, the appearance and attitude of the figures and their
relationships have travelled is the subject of this piece."
Also showing is 'Starshit Enterprise' a limited edition print and 5
minute film with sound.
