LE GUN 6

After a hiatus exhibiting their 3D immersive drawings at shows such as Memory Palace at the Victoria & Albert Museum, Paths to Utopia at Somerset House, and at galleries around the world from Brussels to Beijing, LE GUN are returning with a new publication: LE GUN 6. 

The nucleus of the theme for LE GUN 6 is 'a world gone mad' whereby we find ourselves pitted against each other, crippled and confused by opposing forces – an unrelenting dichotomy of extremes.

LOVE / HATE. HEAVEN / HELL. RICH / POOR. UP / DOWN. BLACK / WHITE. LEFT / RIGHT. HAPPY / SAD. YOUNG / OLD. PUSH / PULL. NORTH / SOUTH. LIFE / DEATH. MAN / WOMAN. YES / NO. FAT / THIN. CARROT / STICK. EAST / WEST. TRUTH / LIES. CREATE / DESTROY. GOOD / BAD. ERECT / FLACCID. LAUGH / CRY. HOT / COLD. PLEASURE / PAIN. HOLD / DROP. ALL / NOTHING. CHICKEN / EGG. IN / OUT. FORWARD / BACKWARDS. MUM / DAD. INK / PAPER. SUBMIT / RESIST...

Join the washed up hack Herbert Fischl as s/he begins an odyssey searching for the truth behind the illusion, losing his sense of reality while assembling a bizarre and fractured news report...

The man who can’t visualise a horse galloping on a tomato is an idiot

ABOUT LE GUN #6

Somewhere between art object and pulp fiction, LE GUN is a large format, independently published compendium of narrative art, featuring a riotous array of work by international artists, designers, and writers, celebrated and unknown. Called a “forum for experimentation” and compared to forerunners Raw, Bazooka, L’Assiette au beurre, and Archigram by Eye Magazine.

LE GUN #6 is open for submissions from anybody, usually inspired by an overarching theme provided by LE GUN. The work of one artist or writer flows into the next in a free wheeling visual poem, punctuated with literary, profound and absurd quotes. Sailing on the side of the surreal and exposing the darker recesses of its warped contributors minds, it is a celebration of drawing and story telling.

Deftly combining low-brow humor and irreverence with arcane references and homages to the likes of Baudelaire and Max Ernst, the wildly imaginative work showcased in LE GUN is sometimes shocking and subversive, sometimes haunting and moving, and always intricately detailed, personal, surreal, and honest.
