Modern Odysseus is a visionary creation by a young author – a movie in book form. Told in blinding poetic prose it creates a Lynchian world of distrust and souldeath, satirising the slick excesses of the 21st century.

In this gallery installation, Julian Shaw interrogates the underlying themes and stories of his book, using raw materials from its original construction. Shaw looks to his own experiences in creating both the book and exhibition, in what has become a long-term labour of love spanning several years of his life.

You are invited to the opening of this exciting exhibition at 6pm Wednesday 13th May 2009.
Meet the creator of the exhibition and hear about Shaw’s labour of love realised in the graphic novel and cross media form.
