Saturday 18 October Saturday 15 November Exhibition at Alan Cristea Gallery, 34 Cork Street, W1 A pole dancer called Shahnoza is the subject of a new series of nine, life-size works by Julian Opie, titled This is Shahnoza in 3 Parts, and featured in the exhibition of the same name at Alan Cristea Gallery from 18 October 2008.
The depiction of Shahnoza has been a recurring theme in Opies work, and the Alan Cristea Gallery has commissioned a short film to explore the history and development of the new works. This film joins the dots from source material to exhibition installation, inviting the viewer into the fiercely private studio of this enigmatic contemporary British artist. It combines never seen before archive footage of his models with computer generated drawings, animations and studies of his most recent works; documentary footage of the installation process, footage of the exhibition itself, accompanied by a commentary by the artist.
