TIME AFTER TIME
LWLies invites you to an exhibition celebrating cinema’s dark obsession with the apocalypse.
David Michôd’s The Rover is a film about life in Australia following a full-blown societal collapse, and it served as key inspiration for LWLies 54.
As a way of exploring different depictions of the end times on film, LWLies’ creative director Timba Smits commissioned 10 artists with a relatively naive illustration style to create a set of bespoke A2 poster prints based upon a carefully curated and diverse selection of classic apocalypse movies, from Michael Haneke’s brooding and brutal Time of the Wolf, to John Boorman’s psychedelic caper Zardoz, and on to such modern classics as Alfonso Cuarón’s grubby dystopic thriller, Children of Men.
The result is Time After Time, an exhibition celebrating cinema’s dark obsession with the apocalypse.
The Exhibition runs Thursday 7 August* until Sunday 10 August at our 71a Gallery, Leonard Street, London EC2A 4QS. Opening hours are 10:00am – 5:00pm.
