The Aerodrome: A love story

The Aerodrome: A love story. By Rex Warner with an introduction by Michael Moorcock

A model of efficiency and order, the aerodrome stands on the hill looking down on the village below. Roy, coming of age in the messy, violent and adulterous world of the villagers, is simultaneously attracted and repelled by this strange place and by the powerful figure of the Air Vice-Marshal. Soon he is led to leave his family, his friends and his love in order to join the aerodrome and confront the secrets of this mysterious and sinister place…

The Aerodrome is the name of Ikon’s 12 June — 8 September 2019 exhibition. It is presented in memory of Michael Stanley, Curator at Ikon before becoming Director of Milton Keynes Gallery and then Modern Art Oxford, who tragically died in 2012. I is co-curated with David Austen and George Shaw and is structured loosely on Rex Warner’s war-time novel of the same name, a book that made a great impression on Stanley, it includes many of the artists he worked with.
