Horst P. Horst (1906-99) created images that transcend fashion and time. He was a master of light, composition and atmospheric illusion, who conjured a world of sensual sophistication. In an extraordinary sixty-year career, his photographs graced the pages of Vogue and House and Garden under the one-word photographic byline ‘Horst’. He ranks alongside Irving Penn and Richard Avedon as one of the pre-eminent fashion and portrait photographers of the 20th century.

An international figure, Horst worked predominantly in Paris and New York. Born in Germany, he became an American citizen in 1943, changing his surname from Bohrmann to Horst. His extraordinary range of work outside the photographic studio conveys a relentless visual curiosity and life-long desire for new challenges. The huge collection of prints, drawings, notebooks, scrapbooks and letters that Horst carefully preserved throughout his life, alongside thousands of prints in the archives of Condé Nast, bear witness to his virtuoso talent.

Alfie Brown’s fourth hour long show is another screaming, pretentious, crusading monstrosity. It’s all about divorce (his), Bipolar disorder (his) and reality (?)

What is right? What is real? Morals are taught, accepted and then regurgitated. It seems bizarre that we don’t ask questions, it seems weird that when we do, people tell us we’re mad. I’m not mad, you’re not mad, society has Munchausen’s syndrome by proxy. Another 55 mins of bombastic diatribe (see?) from Alfie (him).

Visitors will be ordained into the sacred order of the Monks of Bernaise and immersed in the tawdry brotherhood.

Afterwards they will be invited into the monastery’s mess and will receive the sacraments of Hellfire Stew and Absinthe before descending in to the dark subterranean chamber where the ritual takes place.

Chief Abbot, Phil of Kay and his cast of 12 monks will lead his devoted audience through an evening of the sacred and profane in equal measures.
