Heroes & Villains is an exhibition of work by Magnus Irvin currently on show at the 5a gallery (until 6th July). The exhibition takes it's title from a recent series of 7 Peizo pigment prints in which the artist extends the conventions of self-portraiture by portraying himself as other people and objects. Hero or Villain?
Every work is surrounded with laughter, and all deserve
Irvin works in different mediums and uses film, cardboard, chocolate, belisha beacons, and bananas. His Ectoplasmic Apparitions are exceptional photographs created with a technique that has never been seen before. For 25 years he has edited and printed a ridiculous newspaper, The Daily Twit, whose only editorial policy is, "if it makes sense we won't publish it."
Magnus was a co-founder of City Studios Artists' Group
