Douglas Gordon Installation at Impressions

Sat, 1st Oct, 2011

Self Portrait of You and Me (Blue Skies) is a new public realm artwork produced by Douglas Gordon for the large windows of Impressions Gallery showing throughout October as part of Ways of Looking.

Directly facing the former Gaumont Cinema, the fragile face of late 1960s icon Syd Barrett is blown up, hangdog expression and collar upturned against the elements, his image then tragically and delicately pushed by the artist to the point of combustion.

Commissioned by Leeds Met Gallery & Studio Theatre and developed in collaboration with Alan Dunn.
