Nomadic Antipodean Morgan Campbell will be opening his ‘Three Cities’ exhibition in Glasgow tonight (03/08/17) at Pyramid in Kings Court. Head down from 7pm tonight to see what collage work he’s been doing under the déjà glu moniker and scroll past the flyer to read the blurb for more info on what it’s all about!
Morgan Campbell has been creating hand cut collages for over five years under the moniker déjà glu. The material used for the pieces is only taken from vintage National Geographics. Morgan had two solo shows in 2015 and a joint show in May 2017 – with street photographer Casey Foley. Morgan’s work has also been featured in collaborations with The 4 Skateboard Company (Aus), Magenta (France) and Butter Goods (Aus). Déjà Glu – ‘Three Cities’ is compromised of solo shows in Melbourne, Glasgow and Paris. Melbourne opened Friday July 21st to a packed house.
“As a youngster National Geographics were my only real window into the vast world that lay out there. Eventually I was given the chance to travel extensively and shortly after that The Internet rocked up. The combination of these two factors immediately shrunk distances between countries and blurred differences between cultures. I like to delve back into these mags as they remind me of a much larger, less fathomable planet.” -MC
