LE GUN issue 4 / august 2008 Issue 4 of the narrative art annual LE GUN will be distributed worldwide from august 2008. The launch will coincide with an exhibition and temporary arts club taking place at the Rochelle School in Arnold Circus, titled LE GUN 'The Family' 'Dear patrons, please charge your glasses and drink heartily for tomorrow you may die' The warped collective imagination of LE GUN presents a dysfunctional family of many generations, including a man with a crab on his head, the leopard walking heiress Marchesa Casati, and the original fat boy actor Joe Cobb. Raised on the the streets of parallel metropolis Legundon, an eccentrically Anglo-Saxon place of loose women, gin and cream cakes, and Francis Bacon's butchers shop, they are an unusual dynasty. LE GUN's gigantic black and white ink drawings record the families journey from their home cities murky streets and dens of vice, across a wild unchartered ocean to an outlandish Interzone of mind bending intoxicants and bordellos, and the jungle funeral of unloved street urchin Caliper Boy. Private View and Launch Party at the Rochelle School, on Wednesday 3rd September from 5pm, with an extended launch party at Cargo till late. Rochelle School Arnold Circus Shoreditch London E2 7ES Call the LE GUN studio on 0208 985 6756 for more information. // The net has been cast far and wide; LE GUN 4 promises a rich and slippery harvest of pictures and words, a catch that includes Polish artist-crustacean Andrzej Klimowski, Will Sweeney, creator of 'Tales of Green Fuzz', visionary draughtsman Paul Noble, and writing from beat generation expert Barry Miles and dandy of the underworld Sebastian Horsley, as well as fresh fruit from young novelist Richard Milward, Ethnographic writer Iain Sinclair and the 'Hunter S Thompson of Hartlepool', Michael Smith. Added to these afore-mentioned are the less well known but equally delectable new voices that have been chosen for fullness of flavour and keenness of eye... The result is vivid story of stories and stands as an independent work in its own right; somewhere between pulp fiction and an artist's edition. Undigestible in one sitting, this confection asks to be treasured and revisited... ...................................................................................................................
