Loving this MotherF***er at Lights of Soho

SEEN is agog to check out the work of Graeme Messer, due to exhibit his extraordinary and unsettling work, ‘I Love This Motherf***er’ at Lights of Soho in Brewer Street from 2nd November. Graeme’s confrontational pieces - which seem to lure the viewer in with their own reflection and dark humour - will provoke questions of mortality, truth and identity; art as therapy, perhaps.

SEEN is agog to check out the work of Graeme Messer, due to exhibit his extraordinary and unsettling work, ‘I Love This Motherf***er’ at Lights of Soho in Brewer Street from 2nd November. Graeme’s confrontational pieces – which seem to lure the viewer in with their own reflection and dark humour – will provoke questions of mortality, truth and identity; art as therapy, perhaps.

Graeme Messer has a theatrical background, using it to create works that are part-performance and unabashedly autobiographical. Often sweary and funny, with found objects and text, viewers will no doubt be yielding to the urge to take plenty of selfies, and this is what SEEN loves about Graeme’s pieces; their participatory element. They break the fourth wall in glorious fashion. SEEN can’t f***ing wait.

Amid a welter of eateries from the extremely fashionable to the cheerfully cheap sits the excellent Crab Tavern, which, like many restaurants in London manages to give local office workers and hungry travellers an inexpensive yet fine dining experience.
