Leigh Bowery on Showstudio
by Danilo Monzillo

Guiser presents a rare selection of original and previously unpublished material looking at, listening to and writing about the legendary figure Leigh Bowery. The extraordinary personage of Leigh Bowery has had an enormous influence on visual culture - across fashion, art, music and performance - and SHOWstudio wanted to celebrate this legacy. Guiser brings together previously unseen film footage of Bowery being photographed by Nick Knight, with unreleased sound material from 'Minty' demo tapes as soundtrack. An essay by one of Leigh's contemporaries, Donald Urqhart -whose own artistic output and creativity mirrors the breadth of Bowery's output, as well as intertwining creatively with it.
