Friday 27- Monday 30 August at Haunch of Venison Tuesday 31 August- UNKLE On Screen at Prince Charles cinema www.daydreamingwith.com
Daydreaming with..James Lavelle is a unique and visceral new exhibition, bringing together some of the most high profile and acclaimed creative names working in music, art, film, fashion and design today. The ‘pop-up’ exhibition represents the first in a series of annual ‘Daydreaming with..’ festivals, inspired by the desire to marry music and art, which examine the intriguing relationship between the two mediums.
Curated by James Lavelle of UNKLE, each of the artists has responded creatively to exclusive UNKLE music, resulting in an eclectic showcase of talent.
In addition to the range of works which will be exhibited at Haunch of Venison over the Bank Holiday weekend, the festival will now conclude with a special evening with James Lavelle at the Prince Charles cinema in Leicester Square- UNKLE On Screen. The event will feature the screening of a selection of
UNKLE music videos , including John Hillcoat –directed video for new single ‘The Answer’, and commercials scored by the band, as well as the feature film ‘Odyssey in Rome’, directed by Alex Grazioli and scored by UNKLE.
Following the screenings, James Lavelle will be in conversation with Alex Grazioli and John Hillcoat. The conversation will be chaired by Danny Edwards, Editor of shots magazine. We are excited to announce the addition of film, commercials and music video director Jonathan Glazer to the roster of artists. A long time collaborator of James Lavelle, Glazer has worked with some of the world’s most influential musicians over the years. His first collaboration with UNKLE was on 1999’s award winning and legendary music video ‘Rabbit in the Headlights’, and was continued on the 2000 Oscar nominated cult classic ‘Sexy Beast’. A new
short by the director will be shown for the very first time at the exhibition.
Other new additions include design duo Kai and Sunny will also be showing new work at the exhibition. Their uniquely intricate and geometrical style of work has won them multiple accolades including a D&AD award in illustration/ design.
UNKLE’s new single ‘The Answer’ is released on 23 August, to coincide with the exhibition. The follow up to ‘Follow Me Down’ from new album ‘Where did the Night Fall’ this track is a collaboration with improvisational Baltimorebased band Big in Japan. The EP, which provided the inspiration for several of the works on display at Haunch of Venison, will be released on September 13th, featuring a mixture of brand new tracks and reworked versions of songs from the album.
