This venue has level access.

Laid low by life and hooked up to an IV drip of Pop Art, Adam Curtis documentaries and books by John Gray, all the while soundtracked by John Cooper Clarke's Chicken Town, Oddly Head has coughed up a body of work that is both alarming and hilarious. It's also rather beautiful.

Using collage to devastating effect, he launches an attack on our own ravenous species and its subjugation of all other life forms, the relentless pressure to consume, the resulting Death Star-sized trash heaps of defunct product and our increasingly unnatural attitude to food production. And all the while, we have our beaks stuck in a box of battery farmed chicken bones.

Elsewhere, the creatively impoverished, morally hollow world of Hollywood is distilled into its three innate components - guns, explosions and women in peril.

Oddly Head's approach has a heavy air of cynicism and misanthropy, yet the craft is so so accomplished and the detail so intricate, it's never less than thrilling to look at.
