Julian Opie: Sculpture Films Paintings

The facade, floors and walls of the Lisson Gallery will become a showcase for Julian Opie's nudes and portraits. Drawn on the computer some 35 friends and acquaintances of the artist (including members of Blur) will be outputted as paintings, sculptures, wallpaper, films and concrete casts. Upstairs will be a series of digital landscapes incorporating electronic tests, lights and sound, creating a primitive but evocative sensate environment.
