Meggs Toys With The Social Fabric of Urban Society In His Latest Release Rise & Fall
1xRun: Tell us a little bit about this piece? Was it part of a recent theme, series or show that you had?
Meggs: This piece was the hero image for my 'Rise & Fall' solo show almost exactly a year ago with Stolenspace Gallery in London. The show followed my 5-week residency and solo show with Inner State Gallery/1xRun in Detroit and expanded on my perpetual fascination with dualism, urban decay, and finding beauty in tragedy. 'Rise & Fall' toys with current fractures in the social fabric of urban society, such as imploding over-indulgence, fallen idols, and the detriments of pop culture.
