‘Spitting into the Void’ is an exhibition by Harry Wyld at The Social. We celebrate it’s commencement on the walls of our upstairs bar with a night of noise and nonsense downstairs, with Fat Dog, Paddywak, Orbury Common, The Pleasure Dome and The Rothmans coming to perform live and LICE DJs behind the decks, setting the mood before, between and after.
Dining on poo at the Ritz, burying yourself alive in Victoria Park, watching entire universes collapse without batting an eyelash, these artworks are a visualisation of Harry’s continued obsession with an unseen world; life after death, parallel universes and the isolation that comes with just being a person. Equal measures nihilistic and joyful.
The drawings in this series walk a line between confident attestation and desperate cry for help. A push and pull of certainty and uncertainty, exploring the darker side of humanity with offhand immediacy.
Harry’s work is deeply ingrained in underground art and music scenes, working with punk bands, record labels and high fashion brands alike.
Come and see; unflattering, unfettered and unforgiving
