"I love industry. Pipes. I love fluid and smoke. I love man-made things. I like to see people hard at work, and I like to see sludge and man-made waste." David Lynch

Anyone familiar with David Lynch’s enigmatic visual language will identify similarities between this series of photographs and his iconic films.

Featuring black and white interiors and exteriors of industrial structures, the exhibition exudes the unique cinematic style of Lynch (b. 1946, USA) through dark and brooding images.

Shot in various locations including Germany, Poland, New York, New Jersey and England, the works depict the labyrinthine passages, detritus and decay of these man-made structures – haunting cathedrals of a bygone industrial era slowly being taken over by nature.

The exhibition is the first European showcasing of this project and is accompanied by one of Lynch’s sound installations.

David Lynch: The Factory Photographs is curated by Petra Giloy-Hirtz, a curator and author based in Munich, Germany.

This exhibition runs concurrently with Andy Warhol and William S Burroughs, and the admission fee gives access to all three.

Free admission on Monday from 10.00-18.00 and Thursday from 18.00-20.00
