Larry Clark, controversial director and photographer, is to exhibit an array of new and classic works for the first time in the UK.
Clark is best known for casting his unflinching eye over teenage sex, violence and drug abuse.
The show, “What I Do for Fun” will include seminal work from the 90s including staged images from his book, “1992“ and collages created whilst directing the film “Kids”. More recent work, including the collage “I Wanna Baby Before You Die”, will also appear.
“What I Do For Fun”, opening on February 10 rides on the wave of Clark’s recent exhibition at the Musee d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, which saw anyone under the age of 18 controversially banned from the show.
We, naturally, went along to the Paris show and can safely attest that if the Parisian leg is anything to go by, the London show will be worth more than glancing look.
What I Do For Fun opens 10th February at Simon Lee Gallery www.simonleegallery.com
