After its acclaimed run in Dublin, the self-titled LCD Soundsystem exhibition dedicated to the seminal electro-punk band is heading to the UK.

From October 3, LCD fans van view 23 one-off images of James Murphy and co at SWG3 by photographer Ruvan Wijesooriya, accompanied by a series of paintings by Scottish artist Joe Henry – re-creating LCD Pop Artworks in his own artistic language.

“LCD Soundsystem are a bold, brilliant and generation-defining band and we look forward to celebrating them with this fascinating collection of photographs and paintings,” said Meryl Gilbert of SWG3.

Henry added: “Ruvan is the official photographer for LCD and has the best collection of the band I have ever seen. His access and friendship with LCD is something rare in the commercialized and controlled music industry of today, and this close relationship can be seen in the rapport between photographer and subject.

“He shot the two covers for This is Happening and Bye Bye Bayou; His work is purely documentary style, living with the band in LA and NYC and documenting them in the studio, on the road and live. We both discussed collaborating on this exhibition and me doing remixes of his original photography, putting my own pop art spin on top of his photos.”

LCD photographer Ruvan Wijesooriya added; “Joe had this dream to make something happen and he got in touch. He did an Amy Winehouse and Andy Warhol exhibition and was thinking about what he wanted to do next and he got in touch with LCD Soundsystem and James said ‘call Ruvan, he has all of the pictures’.”

“James and the band and everyone think of my work as my work and they help me make that work but they consider it separate from the music they make. Whereas other bands consider their image and artwork to be almost one and the same. LCD is very much not that way.”
