I saw this exhibition today; well worth seeing if you can make it. Apart from the paintings, there's a short film (18 minutes), put together by Aaron Brookner from his uncle's archive, called 'Double-breasted trench' (tho 'Bill Buys A cCoat' would be a better title). It's footage taken in 1982 when Brookner took WSB back to Dalmeny Court in St James where he had lived a decade earlier, and they then went on to Burberry to look at trenchcoats. Finally, Bill has a wander around Piccadilly as the sun goes down. Apparently there's over 30 hours of 'never before seen' footage of WSB in the Brookner archive...

It sounds fascinating! Is there a specific soundtrack with the short film, based (or not) on live sound?
The movie camera is an externalized section of the human nervous system.
