Beyond The (King’s) Road @ Saatchi Gallery

For the second time in a year, the Saatchi Gallery has hosted an event that I was really excited about, and both times it really delivered. This atmospheric, subtle and eerie creation from James Lavelle of UNKLE fame, and the oh so clever brains behind immersive theatre’s godfathers Punchdrunk, creates a mood unlike any art exhbition I’ve seen in a long while.

Featuring a really wide range of technologies but in a way that never felt obtrusive, the experience makes use of lighting, projections, holograms, robotics, movies, props, neon, beds, wax and even a church to create something truly special. And we have been humming the Micheal Kiwanuka song featured in the ‘Roma’ clip ever since.
