Launching at The Book Club in Shoreditch on 7th September 2017, ‘Reverberation’ is a new and unique body of work created by Dean and creative director Ciaran O’Shea from studio Discordo.
A series of large and unique images inspired by The Beatles seminal album ‘Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band’ will be presented at the venue-come-arts-space. Many of the people contained within ‘Reverberation’ are friends and associates of Chalkley and O’Shea. This dynamic and exciting exhibition has developed 'with a little help from their friends'.
Chalkley and O’Shea have created a collection of work that does not stop at a safe or retrospective interpretation. Instead the show is a progressive, and at times abstract, reflection of the album, exploring the thirteen celebrated album tracks from a renewed and personal perspective.
The work employs a range of different approaches; colour and monochrome, pure photography, amalgamations of print, text, painting or collage, these adroit and unexpected routes to image-making reveal the dexterity of the show.
Considered by critics and music lovers to be one of the greatest records ever made and a major cultural moment not only for this country but globally, at 50 years from inception the reverberation of this tremendous work continues to resonate and inspire.
Dean said: ‘Although I’d heard the album probably hundreds of times it was like I’d never really listened to it, this triggered something inside of my head that catapulted my imagination and the need to enjoy it in a whole different way.’
‘Reverberation’ is a free exhibition running at The Book Club in Shoreditch from 7th September until 5th November 2017
