ELEGY: 21 April – 18 June 2016

Elegy

By Nick Payne, directed by Josie Rourke, with set design by Tom Scutt, lighting by Paule Constable and sound by Ian Dickinson for Autograph.

“What if every neuron in the human brain could be mapped and decoded? Every act of human behaviour catalogued and wholly understood? Elegy imagines a very-near future in which radical and unprecedented advances in medical science mean that it’s now possible to augment and extend life. Elegy explores a world in which the brain is no longer a mystery to us. But at what cost?”

Artist: Hisham Echafaki

Artist: Hisham Echafaki

In this anthropomorphic portrait by Hisham Echafaki, the personality of Captain Fox seems perfectly amplified by his elegant fancy attire and natural surroundings. The organic colour palette evokes a sense of harmonious serenity but the decaying vegetation and Captain Fox’s ambiguous gaze also lends to the piece an eerie and unsettling tone.
