With the internet rumour-mill starting to spin with news about a sequel to “The Dark Crystal” being in the works, it seems a good time to announce that Wendy Froud will be exhibiting her personal work alongside Virginie Ropars’ work in The Vault during Marina Bychkova’s solo show “Fragility” in June.
Wendy, along with her husband Brian, were involved extensively in the design of the creatures for both “The Dark Crystal” and “The Labyrinth”. Wendy also worked on the team who created Yoda for the Star Wars film “The Empire Strikes Back”, so it’s rare to find someone who doesn’t know her work!
Hopefully both Wendy and Brian will be coming out to Berlin for the opening of “Fragility”, so this will be a great opportunity to meet these great artists, and to see Wendy’s work close up!
The show opens on June 11th, and we will be bringing you more information about the pieces that Marina, Virginie and Wendy will be showing closer to the time – watch this space…
