This summer, from August 12th to September 26th, exhibiting on each of the four floors of the recently refurbished Pump House Gallery in London’s Battersea Park, Adam Dant, Daniel Merlin Goodbrey, Dave McKean and Warren Pleece will explode the narratives in their work from the printed page into the gallery space and beyond.
Curated by leading comics expert Paul Gravett, the Hypercomics exhibition responds to the function, history and architecture of the Pump House Gallery, using the building’s unusual architecture to weave a story whose outcome depends upon how visitors interact and move through the space. This episodic experience of navigating through the structure of the gallery, takes on the principle of expanding the narrative potential of the comic in relation to its environment, and applying it in a real (as well as virtual) setting.
Where: Pump House Gallery, Battersea Park, London, SW11 4NJ
