The Horse Hospital
Steven Stapleton and David Tibet
2002 April 10 UK London, UK
The Horse Hospital
The Chamber Of Pop Culture is proud to present the world premiere exhibition of the artworks of David Tibet and Steven Stapleton.
Forging a mutual artistic bond in 1983 lasting to the present day.
Tibet and Stapleton create coherent yet separate visions, in turns destructive and beautiful demonic and childlike.
World renowned as recording artists Current 93 and Nurse With Wound.
Tibet and Stapleton initially grew as seminal lights of the UK post-punk experimental and underground scene, to latter production of huge swathes of musically apocalyptic folkscapes and surreal visions of unsellable pop music.
This inaugural exhibition, with two site-specific sound installations by the artists, displays both new and old 2D and 3D works, including original album cover art: comprising a selection from a vast twenty year body of work on paper and in sound.

This page only lists the Steven Stapleton artworks displayed
