Passage of the Soul: an ongoing quest into identity

David Blandy’s Passage of the Soul exhibition at the Exeter Phoenix is still the part of the Guardian Guide’s exhibition pick of the week (well, till tomorrow – February 17 – at least).

But you’ve got until March 17 to sample David’s fusion of his passions for hip-hop culture, manga cartoons and kung fu.

David’s work deals with the ‘slippage and tension between fantasy and reality in everyday life’, and that might be difficult when your alter egos are battling it out in a computer game.

Of course, there’s more to the exhibition than meets the eye, and you’ll be able to pop along to the free Eye Opener event on Wednesday, February 22 at 1.30pm for an informal discussion about the exhibition in the gallery.

Followed by an artist talk, on Saturday, February 25 when David will talk about the exhibition and his wider practice and search for his cultural position in the world.
