Preview: Yes, surprising is existence in the post-vegetal cosmorama

Wow, the title itself is a mouthful. It is certain to raise the odd eyebrow in the more conservative areas of the art community, but read on alt-faithful for the Grundy’s upcoming show, Yes, surprising is existence in the post-vegetal cosmorama, is worth the trip to the Penguin book of post modern terminology.

Heather Phillipson’s show, which opens this Saturday, is the most ambitious show the Grundy has programmed in years. In many years of Grundy attendance, I have never seen the very structure of the galleries altered and reformed so drastically. The whole of the space has been reformed to create a journey for the viewer that takes one throughout the insides of our organic forms. In and out of the most unusual orifices we will wander and experience a variety of different work in various media.

We can climb aboard speedboats held aloft on bottled water, ride in cars with video-filled windscreens and gawp, slack mouthed, at the largest banana you will ever get to see. It’s going to be an eye-popping and immersive show that challenges as well as entertains.

The show has come from the famed and critically acclaimed Baltic Gallery where it garnered praise and filled the Gateshead gallery on a regular basis. Heather Phillipson is an artist and a Faber published poet.ย  The love of the visual and words themselves is evident throughout the remarkable show.

The show runs from 28 June to 6 September and promises to be one that will guarantee your attention and thought.
