THE SHOP OF ROBERT RUBBISH

LONG LIVE THE SOHO DEAD


While searching eBay i found a man in Canada selling a small ceramic skull inscribed with Le Macabre’s name and address. I was transfixed by this object and while I didn’t end up buying it I went back onto the Web and like a digital Soho archaeologist discovered photos of the skulls that I downloaded for research.
Resolving to create my own version, i worked with a ceramic artist on producing a limited edition bearing the inscription “Long live the Soho dead”.
The skull is a Memento Mori for the living, to remember what we have lost.”
