Following a formidable run in 2012 that’s seen exhibitions from Robert Montgomery, Antony Crook and Ill Studio, KK Outlet strikes again to bring us the work of psychedelic visual shapeshifter, Alex Turvey. Credited as one of Fashion’s New Generation by Vogue, as well as one of the Fifteen Creatives Who Will Define The Future of British Arts by The Independent, Turvey now offers a spellbinding visual response to the work of musician Blanck Mass. Turvey explains, “The birth of the visual journey originated entirely as an instinctive visual response to the beautiful complexity of Blanck Mass’ soundscapes, created to support live performances.

There was never a predetermined style for the visuals and each stage was unplanned, allowing the visuals to be molded by an instinctive programme in response to sound, rather than as part of an overt design master plan

“There was never a predetermined style for the visuals and each stage was unplanned, allowing the visuals to be molded by an instinctive programme in response to sound, rather than as part of an overt design master plan. The result is a strangely emotive and equally jarring watching experience utilizing basic CGI techniques to create a surreal journey which mimics the gestation of an alien life, from a small metallic stone into a contorted entity that then travels over kaleidoscopic, volcanic landscapes.”

The Blank Mass exhibition will open on the 4th of May and run for three weeks at the KK Outlet in Hoxton Square
