David Blandy’s new work continues to explore his obsessions with pop culture. Previous work has referenced Street Fighter, Star Wars, Atari computer games, Guitar Hero, Kung Fu and black music.
David Blandy’s new video work Biter premieres for one evening at the Whitechapel Gallery’s Zilka Auditorium. A hip-hop fan since the early 90’s, the work examines how much hip-hop has entered the artist’s unconscious mind. Shot on location at The Freud Museum, Biter will ask questions about identity – how much of the artist’s self is hip-hop? The screening will be followed by a short performance and talk.
Ticket holders are invited to the Arts Café Bar at Toynbee Studios for a vinyl DJ set by Blandy of the tunes referenced in the video.
