Dalston Superstore and Anna Bruder presents: ALine 117
Exhibition ran from Thursday 20th Oct – 28th Nov
Anna Bruder’s ALine 117 exhibition took you back to a childlike state of mind by transforming our original interior into a solely black and white illustrated world.
Thick black marker pen out lines, set against a white backdrop, illustrated Anna’s world of naïve yet humorous and clever representation of domesticity and every day life.
A playful environment was created reminiscent of simplistic youth.
A contemporary pop artist, with touches of the graffiti and graphic image likened to Keith Haring and Jean Paul Basquiat, Bruder utilised her experience and great skill in set design and prop-making to create an enchanting and charismatic world.
ALine 117 was the first exhibition of this series of works from Bruder, her intent is to develop her ‘world’ in any given context, whether it be a gallery, an old bus or a school in Zambia. The 2D monochromatic adventure begins!
