 Hosted by FOLD Gallery | London and brought to you by Hotel Swirly-Whirly, Speak, Clown!, was conceived in kinship with the surrealists, the pre-surrealist visionaries, and psycho-pathological art. It brings together works that touch upon the whole gamut of the comic and draws heavily from the culturally rooted concepts of the four humours (sanguine, choleric, melancholic and phlegmatic).

Expect to be disturbed, perturbed, amused and confused in equal measures.

Plus a one night only performance by Neal Tait.
