Dead Wright is a collaboration between Elin Adler and one of my favourite Irish artists, Mick Minogue, opening at Gallery 1988 in LA on August 20th.

Minogue explains the project, “The idea was to make an Edgar Wright zombie pińata. We would fill this pińata with handmade treats and little surprises. Elin would sculpt and cast moulds for the candy treats which will also act as moulds for unique art pieces which will be on display. I would make a customised Sean of the Dead styled cricket whack bat which will be given to Edgar Wright on the opening night. Edgar will be given the once in a life time opportunity to bash his own zombie brains in while everyone watching can then have a zombie feeding frenzy. As well as making the pińata and all its gory content, Elin and I would create individual art pieces representing our favourite Wright moments in film and TV.”

After meeting Wright at the Light House Cinema in Dublin, the director agreed to the task, and is set to take a bat to his own likeness next week.

You can read more about it, and see parts of the project come to life in a photo album here.
