UK based artist Phlegm is collaborating with the Royal Opera House in London Covent Garden this month. We followed Phlegm as he created a large scale outdoor installation for the Festival of Myth curated by Minna Moore Ede of the National Gallery and the Royal Ballet, which will be on display until September 28. Influenced by the Greek myths, Prometheus and Leda and the Swan, cut out wooden panels build an imposing sculptural fortress that stands tall on the piazza entrance to the opera house, and Phlegm’s signature characters blend harmoniously with mythological figures.
Phlegm also painted a large mural on the inside of the opera house depicting a tree hung with smoldering objects and entangled with celestial orbs, which will be up for at least the next year. A series of nine hand made coper etching are also displayed next to his indoor mural.
For his first ever solo show Phlegm created a large scale installation called the Bestiary at the Howard Griffin Gallery in London. Using wood, clay, plaster and spraypaint, Phlegm invites us in his imaginary world, where strange animals and other street artists are stored in jars and shelves, from Descreet, Burning Candy to Banksy to name a few. Upon entering the main room, we are surrounded by different narratives, on one hand a vessel reminiscent of Noah’s Ark, while a giant owl overlooks a scene of fleeing animals. Also to note that nothing is for sale, but a true experiment for the viewers.
