Haunch of Provost

Went to see the opening of Nicolas Provost's Stardust exhibit at Haunch of Venison last night with my friend Harry.

It consists of three main videos:
Long Live the New Flesh (see below), a wonderfully hallucinatory and coagulating horror-show mish-mash which we watched in disgusted wonder.

Storyteller - a mesmerising tracking view of Vegas which mirrors the footage horizontally - giving it a beautiful bejewelled sci-fi look.

Stardust - a 20 minute video again set in Vegas which feeds you a stream of people and situations which you create your own story for - Jack Nicholson crops up in it looking and behaving exactly as you'd expect. That was Harry's favourite - but I think that's because he was daydreaming about being Jack's Vegas wing man.

All in all deliciously enjoyable - it's on till 29th Jan 2011. Go check out Provost's site for a taster.
