Hercules: Rough Cut
Exhibition Dates: 10th July – 19th September 2015
HERCULES : ROUGH CUT, David Blandy’s new commission for Bloomberg SPACE, explores empire, civilisation, London and language in a hypnotically rotating, mutating installation of video and voice. It is the latest work for Bloomberg SPACE in the 2015 series The Homecoming, a programme of four projects by Adam Dant, Gayle Chong Kwan, David Blandy and Melanie Manchot that explore and respond to the history and architecture of the City of London.
