Backstage with Gareth Pugh
Backstage even the exquisitely abstract pared back make-up by Val Garland and Sam Mcknight’s supergraphic hair gave little clue to the glorious outcome of Gareth Pugh and Nick Knight’s reunion in film. “Its rather strong” said Mr Knight when I wished him luck at the appropriately located Imax cinema in Waterloo. The enormity of this understatement is matched only by the extraordinary and beautiful nature of the piece and Gareth Pugh’s collection.
