Galleri Rostrum presenterar det legendariska konstkollektivet
LE GUN, som bildades i London 2004 när de träffades på konstskolan Royal Collage of Art. De skapar idiosynkratiska bilder och världar
genom kollaborationsteckning, i deras bildspråk kombinerar de en estetik av punk, det ockulta, pop och surrealism. Gruppen producerar även sin egen kult magasin med samma namn och är internationellt erkända för deras gåtfulla och mystiska installationer och konst-
utställningar, samtidigt som de arbetar individuellt som konstnärer/ illustratörer.

The Far Shadow är LE GUN’s första utställning i Malmö och speglar deras gemensamma intressen för drömmen, det narrativa och det absurda. Kom och upplev deras utställning växa fram på Rostrums väggar, när de tillsammans skapar kollaborationsteckningar, där individens hand besegras av gruppens fantasi.

Our shadow has always been with us … The Far Shadow is a way of reviewing what we are. There isalso the fact that half of the LE GUN crew can’t make it to this show but their shadow can. Is our work a shadow of ourselves? The Far Shadow, drawings, thoughts, far from where they were made… With you till you die.

The Far Shadow inkluderar verk av Bill Bragg, Chris Bianchi,
Neal Fox, Robert RubbishSteph von Reiswitz och Emma Rendel,
där tre av konstnärerna kommer att vara på plats på Rostrum.

Samtidigt i London visar de Temple of Perpetual Myth, del av utställningen Paths to UtopiaSomerset House och har ställt ut internationellt på olika gallerier, museer, konstmässor och social
clubs i bland annat London, Paris, Berlin, Bryssel, Stockholm, Beijing
and Tokyo.

In English

Galleri Rostrum proudly presents the legendary LE GUN, showing in Malmö for the first time. Established in 2004, art collective LE GUN create idiosyncratic imagery, which blends a punk, occult, pop and surrealist aesthetic. As well as being the producers of their cult
self-titled magazine, the group is internationally recognised for their enigmatic installations and art shows. Besides working independently as artists and illustrators they also come together to make colla-
borative drawings, where the individual hand is subjugated to the group imagination. They are currently showing their Temple of Perpetual Myth, at the exhibition Paths to Utopia at Somerset House in London, where they worked as Shamans using surrealist games to channel other realms. Once described as having a “dark, Anglo Saxon sense of humour”, The Far Shadow at Galleri Rostrum reflects their shared interest in dreams, narrative and the absurd.

Our shadow has always been with us … The Far Shadow is a way of reviewing what we are. There isalso the fact that half of the LE GUN crew can’t make it to this show but their shadow can. Is our work a shadow of ourselves? The Far Shadow, drawings, thoughts, far from where they were made… With you till you die.

The Far Shadow involves artworks from Bill Bragg, Chris Bianchi, Neal Fox, Robert Rubbish, Steph von Reiswitz and Emma Rendel, where three of these artists will be present at Galleri Rostrum to
meet and greet you.

LE GUN has exhibited internationally at various galleries, museums, art fairs and social clubs in places like London, Paris, Berlin, Brussels, Stockholm, Beijing and Tokyo.
