Planet of the Jackanapes

Presented by Battle of the Eyes

Friday 11 - Sunday 27 May (Monday to Saturday 10am-4.30pm, Sunday 1pm-4.30pm)

Savage Pencil (aka Edwin Pouncey) and Eyeball (aka Chris Long) are Battle of The Eyes, the gallery at Norwich Castle will become their studio during the festival and a public arena in which they pass the loaded paintbrush back and forth. Their first solo show includes paintings from the ongoing ‘The Predatory Life’ series, archival materials, live action painting, films and on-site sculpture. Unashamedly adventurous and diabolically mischievous, the artists grapple with the glorious and the grotesque, the witty and the imaginative.

See the Planet Of The Jackanapes takes shape LIVE; performances in the gallery on Saturday & Sunday 12, 13, 20 & 26 from 1–4pm, and Saturday 19 5–10pm as part of Museums at Night event. Look out for BOTE escaping out onto the streets of Norwich.


“Battle of the Eyes is a unique symbiosis, two brains and bodies interacting and co-creating as one...” Paul Gravett, Curator and Director of the Comica Festival
