Advanced Mechanics, a show from Elph and Lyken @ Pageant, Edinburgh
Advanced Mechanics, the follow up to Haunted Graffiti from Elph and Lyken, opens next Friday 15th Jan, 7-10pm at Pageant 10 Laurieston Street, Edinburgh, EH3 9DJ. It runs till the 13th February.
Lyken's abstract work seeks to illustrate a phosphorescent subatomic universe of molecular motors, protein pistons & chemical energy. Elph draws from a love of comic books and manga/anime, creating a hectic mash up of machinery and spaceships. For this show he will be following a female astronaut and her adventures in the dark reaches of the galaxy, otaku style.
The pair will execute a large-scale mural in the gallery space which will serve as a backdrop to this new work. There will also be a limited edition tshirts available for sale on the opening night & a give away disc featuring a specially commissioned music track & platform game.
