Strychnin Gallery “Midsummer Night’s Madness” – Elmer Presslee!

Here is the second part of our round-up of “Midsummer Night’s Madness” here at Strychnin Gallery in Berlin – Elmer Presslee’s installation in the Vault, our space reserved for special exhibits and installations.

Elmer worked like crazy to get everything ready for the opening, and I’m sure everyone will agree it was worth the sleepless nights and the effort of everyone involved!

“When I Grow Up I Wanna Fuck Damien Hirst” – originally titled “Lucifer’s Quilt” it was subject to a 4am name change!

The flowers on the floor are nothing compared to what is on the other wall….

“I Was Born To Win & Gambling’s A Sin & That’s The Way I Like It Grandma, Because I Have Good Health Insurance”

Elmer describes the title of this installation as being “the direct opposite of the Motorhead song The Ace of Spades”!

The strange creature flying out from the centre of the installation is called “Marty”

“Marty” – every home needs a Conan-inspired, sword-weilding tentacled creature riding a furry thing suspended from the roof!

Elmer Presslee in front of “I Was Born To Win & Gambling’s A Sin & That’s The Way I Like It Grandma, Because I Have Good Health Insurance” – if you think he looks tired, that’s because at this point he had slept around 1 1/2 hours in the last 48!

Thanks for all your hard work Elmer! Everyone who has visited the gallery so far, and all of us here at Strychnin Gallery really appreciate it, and hope you get the chance to catch up on some rest!
