In the Bakery (Extended)

In Stay Gold Harry Meadley (Leeds, b.1987) shows three works which attempt to be 'timeless' - and appear as if equally from the distant past or the far future, from fifty years ago or today. The title of the exhibition refers to a sentence taken from the book The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton, the film adaptation directed by Francis Ford Coppola as well as the film's title song. Two of the three works in the bakery are made of gold: Glamourie, representing the artist himself, it is the volume of his body in pure gold and 'Edition of 3', a golden triangle referring to the 'tri-force' from The Legend of Zelda computer games series on Nintendo which the artist has played his whole life. Shootin' for Love. Wanderers of the West, 2012 - a petrified canvas made at the infamous Mother Shipton's Well, Knaresborough, UK. The title is a quote from the movie The Three Amigos! and refers to an event from Meadley's childhood in which after having received some awful news, his mother took him on a day trip to the petrifying well.
