Spreading fear and mayhem in the visual arts.

Wen Wu's "Vivien Leigh Complex" around the corner from me, London

Okay, so this is weird. A super talented London-based Chinese artist I've never heard of exhibiting at a space merely 20 meters away from the WurzelEmpire HQ which I've also never heard of.

The artist in question is Wen Wu and she will present Vladimir Tretchikoffesque/Eric Whitesque works that tackle her Vivien Leigh Complex and the space turns out to be an artists-run place called Basket House Village Universe.

It all sounds so delightfully random, I will definitely go check it out at tonight's opening reception.
