Beyond The Road, Saatchi Gallery - ★★★★ - Until September 8, 2019


Developed by Colin Nightingale and Stephen Dobbie this intriguing installation brings together works by an amazing variety of artists, from perfume designer Azzi Glasser to Turner Prize nominee Nathan Coley. The visual artists involved worked knowing that the context for their creations would be an environment of the music of James Lavelle and his band UNKLE. The layering in their albums "The Road Part I" and "The Road Part II/Lost Highway" led Nightingale and Dobbie to go "Beyond The Road." This project with its deconstructed music at its core seeks to engage participants by recreating how they perceive music while they experience different environments. The various senses are engaged as visitors explore and are immersed in worlds that they are invited to synthesise and assimilate. A knowledge of Lavelle's music before a visit to the installation is not required, but it will certainly enrich an immersive experience that pushes boundaries.
