For his first solo show at Coleman Project Space, McKenzie will create a sculptural installation for the main gallery. The shed space in the garden behind, meanwhile will become an archival room/picture house devoted to the travel 'artefacts' and carefully choreographed exploits of his main performance protagonist, Monsieur Poo-Pourri. The Estate home of this dandy (with a penchant for the surreal) is owned by Tower Hamlets. McKenzie's absurd re-contextualisation of a class stereotype engages one with the very real problems and triumphs of a London community in Big-Society Britain.
