Discover Melissa Medusa by Gary Card
Galeria Melissa London present MELISSA MEDUSA; their latest installation from set designer and illustrator Gary Card.
Transforming Covent Garden’s Galeria Melissa London into the lair of a modern Medusa, Gary has designed 3D tentacle sculptures which wrap and twirl around the venue, all the way from the main installation room in the basement, up the staircase and into the Galeria entrance where LED screens display a video created specifically for the installation with long-time collaborator Ferry Gouw.
The tentacles themselves are sculptures of characters inspired by Max Fleischer inspired cartoon imagery. Upon entering Galeria Melissa, the audience are led by the tentacles to the basement ‘crypt’ where they are confronted by the giant floating Melissa Medusa head with eyes that flicker and spin.
