Anthony Symonds will present the second part of his current work ‘garment pattern tryptic’. Based on the poem “Milka, Milka, Citronada, round the corner chokolada (smade)” the drags on show describe a binary system of organizing principles,  conceived in the first instance to allow for infinite re configuration of the fewest ergonomic referents and secondly the plotting of a more poetic transept through the heft of neo-classical geometry whilst managing to be quite bona in spite of everything.
