At The Cube Cinema, Dove Street South, Bristol, BS2 8JD 0117 9074190


Films In America 1929 -1969 is a wry new book work by Lady Lucy based on a book she found in The Cube Cinema Green Room. A re-appropriation of the first four decades of sound film, 41 film portraits – one for each year – including The Lady Vanishes, Little Women, The Philadelphia Story, Rear Window. The pictures don’t explicitly spell out which film each drawing represents, leaving the readers playing a guessing game. Collaborating with Cube designer Richard Starzecki and Old School Cube film programmer Ben Slater who has written an mesmerising piece of text to go in the ltd edition book.

Originally a Cube exhibition, this is the first series of new Perplexed commissions. Perplexed is the Cube Cinema’s publishing Imprint, established to release a series of open themed projects and to involve and inspire involvement among artists, photographers, designers, performers, and the never ending array of creative people associated with our place.

Heartthrobs are a series of portraits inspired by a book with a tag line ” The moody males of your dreams”.
