A brand new piece of work (in development) from Gameshow.

They Say: Granny Ludski, curator, wants it all! A regular, pop-up spectacular of stimulating moving image art, innovative music, photography, painting, sculpture, compelling performance art, vj’s, poets… Anything to keep Granny happy!
They Say: For our inaugural salon, we visit Japan to take inspiration from the darker side of Japanese festivals, folklore and funerary traditions. We mark the event of ‘Hina Matsuri’, Shinto’s Japanese Doll Festival, exploring the uncanny nature of the doll with a model posing both nude and in traditional Japanese costume.
