Scott King is the laureate of the New Labour/Loaded culture, undermining Britain’s millennnial self-confidence to show us that beneath the Cool Britannia gloss, we’re a culture that knows neither what we’re doing or where we’re going.
His work is innovative, visually stimulating and eclectic but more than that it’s important, it challenges blithe mass media assumptions about how we want to see ourselves and it needles away at what we think we know.
His new show solo show Finish The Work That You’ve Started opens this weekend in London featuring typically impressive new work chiding us tongue-in-cheek to question social choices that have calcified into accepted realities. We can’t wait.
Finish The Work That You’ve Started is at Herald Street from June 2 to July 8.
