THE DECORATIVE POTENTIAL OF BLAZING FACTORIES
A film by
Gary Chitty & Bruce McLean
The Coronet Theatre
A quest for artistic inspiration turns into a disaster of biblical proportions in the long-awaited new film by seminal sculptor Bruce McLean and director-producer Gary Chitty.
An ingenious blend of art and drama ‘starring 58 sheets of foam board’, The Decorative Potential of Blazing Factories is a journey to the very heart of art and politics.
This motion picture is far from being a conventional film. With its deliberately grandiose plot, this ‘cardboard catastrophe’ pokes fun at the lavish tropes of the art world, and political aspirations gone mad.
A major figure in contemporary UK art, Bruce McLean is a sculptor who works with painting, ceramics, prints, video and live action sculpture. Gary Chitty has made over a hundred short form films for commerce, and has won more than thirty international awards.
