The single red balloon is back. In light of ‘It Chapter Two’, cultural shape-shifter Phlippe Le Miere gives paint to your darkest fears. Like a rorschach test, he pares Pennywise back to a slash, grin and glinting eye – inviting you to face your childhood fears.
Not only an evocation of Stephen Fry’s classic, ‘ITMovie Pennywise ITChapterTwo IT IT2 horror painting...' asks why horror films enthral us. What do the ghosts, ghouls and killers we flinch at onscreen reveal about our offscreen realities? And perhaps more pertinently, why do we seek vicarious terror? How does screaming at fiction exorcise our demons?
Like the horror novelist at the centre of ‘It Chapter Two’, Le Miere compels you to overcome your inhibitions. A study of a classic and investigation into what makes a classic, this deliciously fearful work is for collectors of pop art, horror enthusiasts and all who have wondered what haunts our cultural anxities. But quick, there’s a white face in the sewer and he's hungry.
