Neckface will be opening up his latest exhibition today at the V1 Gallery in Copenhagen. Entitled Return To The Womb, the showcase looks to present the California-based artist’s usual brand of horror-infused works to his European fan base. V1 had this to say about their exhibiting artist:
Entering Neckface’s universe is like entering a horror chamber. At first glance his exhibition resembles a teenage room. Nostalgia and smiles quickly appear. But at second thought the warm memories and daft grin soon feels wrong. Because the deadly noose clinging to Neckface’s scrawny beings, and the blood that gushes from the chopped off limbs are not only figments of the imagination. These are images that have followed humanity since we first set our sights on this planet. From the inquisitions and witch hunts of the medieval times over the Judas Cradle and Iron Maidens to the world wars in the twentieth century and the prison camps of the twenty-first century in which human cries are lost in a geographic void that literally exists outside laws and regulations.
