    New Pop Up Exhibit Featuring Kai and Sunny

    "Daydreaming with... James Lavelle" opens today at the Haunch of Venison gallery in London. James Lavelle of music group UNKLE curates work from music, art, film, fashion, and design to bring an experience that combines music with visual art. Lavelle reveals in an interview, "We want to break down the line between what people think and do traditionally in the art and music realms, there's a diversity in the work, we want to take things out of their boxes."

    The original artist lineup includes James Lavelle, Warren du Preez & Nick Thornton Jones, Nathan Coley, Futura, Jonas Burgert, Polly Borland, Azzi Glasser, Ian Monroe, Alex Box, Boudicca, Ben Drury, 3D, Dan Glasser, Will Bankhead, Faile, Jamie Shovlin, Oswaldo Macia, Simon Birch, David Nicholson, and more. Kai and Sunny were invited to the be in the show in early August. Their addition came as no surprise as the duo previously collaborated with Unkle on album art for select tracks to Alexander McQueen's A/W 2009 McQ collection.

    Each artist was assigned a music track for inspiration to create a piece of work for the show. Kai and Sunny were given "Country Tune" by Gavin Clark. Kai and Sunny explain, "For us the track has a beauty but also a sense of unrest - the idea of when you're in one place you want to be some where else - never quite content. So with that notion in mind that's how we approached our 2 pieces. Equally we didn't want to be too literal and the works will hopefully feel different to different people."

    "Daydreaming with..." runs August 27-30th at Haunch of Venison.
