Grace Jones is unleashed upon the world in unique form at a groundbreaking exhibition presented by the Vinyl Factory, London. The highly revered musical icon has collaborated with Chris Levene, a ground breaking light artist on a series of 3-D holographic portraits. Grace Jones and Chris Levine were introduced by Philip Treacy, who was art directing Grace’s first live band show in over a decade at the Royal Festival Hall in 2008. The inventive collaboration between these two highly original, creative characters blossomed, and Jones soon asked Levine to create some original laser work for her tour. The results were breathtaking. Audiences were left stunned as a high-beam laser shone directly onto Grace’s Swarovski crystal bowler hat designed by Philip, showering the entire audience in shards of light. Chris has subsequently directed Jones’ latest video ‘Love You to Life’ which the exhibition will also feature and be used to launch. Notorious for her provocative and often obscurely wild antics, the portraits are certain to be an exceptional and unmissable experience… Wild does not even cover it!
