Last chance to see: David Lynch - My Head is Disconnected | HOME | Sun 29 Sep | Free

The final weekend in September also marks your last chance to see HOME’s extensive David Lynch exhibition My Head is Disconnected – which finally comes to a close on Sunday. Scattered with themes of isolation, dystopia and a number of strange figures, this eerie and atmospheric collection of work is an absolute must-see for any fan of the Director’s equally resonant film and television output. Drop by, wander through the space and take one last look at over 60 pieces of Lynch’s memorable work – before it’s gone for good.
