Love Lies Bleeding, Kati Heck’s surrealism and a very sweet sando treat
3 May 2024

Still, ‘Love Lies Bleeding’ by Rose Glass, 2024

This article is part of Weekend Combo – What to do this weekend

It’s the first weekend of May which means spring has sprung and we’re being treated to a delicious four-day bank holiday to mark the occasion – get stuck in.


We’ve been waiting for this one
In Rose Glass’ latest film Love Lies Bleeding, reclusive gym manager Lou (Kristen Stewart) falls hard for Jackie, an ambitious bodybuilder played by Katy O’Brian. What follows is a sexed-up thriller that harks back to film noir. Featuring supporting performances from Ed Harris, Dave Franco and Jena Malone, this is one of the year’s most anticipated (and best reviewed) releases. We will be seated!

Love Lies Bleeding is out in cinemas now. 


Marc Quinn turns a new leaf
Once a young provocateur who counted himself among the Young British Artists, Marc Quinn is probably best known for his solid gold sculpture Siren which depicted Kate Moss in a particularly intricate yoga position. For his new exhibition at Kew Gardens, however, Quinn is searching for the links between nature and humanity. Titled Light into Life, the exhibition will feature seventeen stainless steel and bronze sculptures around the Gardens, while a presentation of Quinn’s new and existing paintings, drawings, sculptures and frozen works will be on display in the Shirley Sherwood Gallery.

Marc Quinn: Light into Life will open on May 4th and run until September 29th at Kew Gardens, more info here

Antwerp-based painter Kati Heck is returning to Sadie Coles HQ for her third show at the gallery, presenting a brand new collection of paintings and sculptures that take their cue from established tropes of art history. Taking traditional techniques and imbuing them with surrealist qualities, her work taps into the uncanny in an accessible manner as she reworks Albrecht Dürer’s winged figure of Nemesis and animal eyes lurk in the background of seemingly normal landscapes.

Kati Heck: TIP-TOE-ECHO runs at Sadie Coles HQ until May 11th, more info here
