As part of last year’s Manchester International Festival, HOME hosted a major event centred on the work of David Lynch, with almost the entire venue dedicated to the work of this inimitable filmmaker and visual artist. Cut to 2020 and with everyone stuck in lockdown, the HOME team have made aspects of this takeover available online. By visiting the venue’s website you can browse a photo gallery of My Head is Disconnected, the first major UK exhibition of Lynch’s visual art. This features his avant-garde paintings, drawings and sculptures from the late sixties up to the present day. HOME’s curator Bren O’Callaghan also provides an audio commentary for the exhibit. You can replay a live video Q+A with the man himself, during which he talks about these artworks and his acclaimed films and TV shows. In another video discussion, which also features musician Tim Burgess, he talks about a discipline which is key to his creative process: transcendental meditation. Additionally, there’s an exclusive essay by critic James King about Lynch’s use of sound. Head here to start exploring.
