CAPSID is the latest multi-media maximalist installation by London-based British artist John Walter. Presenting a compelling, sometimes riotous and often surreal world, CAPSID is the result of collaboration between Walter and molecular virologist Professor Greg Towers of University College London.
The exhibition features the new HOME Artist Film commission, A Virus Walks Into A Bar, charting the journey of a Capsid, or protein shell contained within viruses, that help protect and deliver viruses to host cells during infection. But imagine if this took place in the Queen Vic from EastEnders, standing in for a cell under attack, with a bunch of angry locals as the immune system!
Let the trailer whet your appetite.
John Walter: CAPSID opens on Sat 10 Nov and runs until Sun 06 Jan. Find out more here.
