David Blandy presents


an interactive performance by the Shaolin Temple UK followed by a screening of Shaw Brothers' seminal martial arts movies 'The 36th Chamber of Shaolin' (1978). David Blandy's year-long installation at 176 / Zabludowicz Collection, 'Fortress of Solitude — Soul Archive', reveals a personal quest for truth and authentic experience via the cultures that have shaped him. The music and legends of blues, soul, funk and hip-hop haunt and guide his endeavours. Fortress of Solitude — Soul Archive (2007) is a library of Blandy's references and a playroom pastiche of a gallery education space or waiting room. In Blandy's Fortress everything needed to unpack the various meanings of the artist's work is laid out for the viewer to ‘get in to'. This seminal work was acquired by the Zabludowicz Collection in 2007. Blandy's performances and events complement and develop the installation.
