The End of the Professional Teenager

23/03/2004 ::  

The Gallery at Sketch in conjunction with Pollock Fine Art hosts the first UK exhibition of Bjarne Melgaard, from 10 November – 22 December 2003. The exhibition will utilize various spaces at Sketch and consist of multi-channel animation in the Video Gallery in collaboration with Halvor Bodin of Superlow and with further contributions from Chris Wilder and Thad Strode, as well as drawings and 3-d works.

"The End of the Professional Teenager" combines animation with live action sequences. Melgaard’s latest work is a swan song for a trend whose time has come. The movie dissects the phenomenon of endless adolescence, which in recent years has masqueraded as a major contribution to culture. Melgaard finds this suspicious at best.

First UK exhibition: 10 November – 22 December

9 Conduit Street
London W1S 2XG

Open to the public 10am-5pm
Reservations only 7pm-2am

Curator: Mehrnoosh Khadivi
