Page 2 of the Exhibition Catalog for “The Legend of Leigh Bowery”: a retrospective exhibit; The foyer at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco, California. Schwartz 2014
The lenticular printed catalog is encased in a 3d printed cover using Bowery’s lime green tutu head creation.
The foyer of the YBCA is a large space covering the entire length of the museum. His council flat’s kitchen/sewing studio is recreated over and over in a series of hanging boxes throughout the foyer. The multiple Leigh Bowery mannequins pose for the imaginary camera and run fabrics through the sewing machines from foyer floor to the ceiling. The walls of the museum are reimagined as the exteriors of the council flats he lived in throughout his years in London
