James Merry

Curated by Iris van Herpen & Salvador Breed presented by Le Guess Who? & Centraal Museum James Merry is a visual artist, originally from Gloucestershire in the UK, who is now based in Iceland where he has been living and working with Björk since 2009. As her co-creative director on visuals, he created masks and headpieces for a number of live and video performances. Four of these beautifully handcrafted pieces will be exhibited. Outside of his work with Björk, James Merry is primarily known for his hand embroidery on sportswear and has collaborated with institutions such as the V&A, Gucci, ShowStudio and Opening Ceremony. Live embroidery and Q&A on Saturday 9 November, hosted by Current Obsession, see page 64 for more information. Your LGW wristband gives you access to the complete Untitled program, as well as access to all other exhibitions in Centraal Museum during the festival weekend.
