Lowe, Colin
The group exhibition Temple of Bacchus, at Milton Keynes Gallery in 2003, took a humorous approach to reflecting Britain’s bad social habits. Colin Lowe and Roddy Thomson, together with Sarah Lucas, transformed the gallery's pristine spaces so that they resembled a snap shot of London's pub culture. Featuring gambling, smoking and drunkenness, the exhibition succeeded in exposing the darker side of Britain's social culture.
