The Seven Ages Of Rodney Archer
In Rodney’s study
I am sure you wish to join me in sending greetings to Rodney Archer the Aesthete for his seventy-fifth birthday today. To celebrate, he is opening an exhibition at his house which illustrates the Seven Ages of Rodney and also inaugurating the Oscar Wilde Room as a shrine to his favourite writer, supplementing the fireplace from Wilde’s house in Tite St, which was installed in Fournier St many years ago, with his prized collection of Wilde memorabilia.
For the last year, Rodney has been collaborating with Artist & Curator, Trevor Newton, to stage shows at his old house as a way to display and sell off items from his vast collection that he has accumulated from the markets in Brick Lane and all over the East End since he moved into Fournier St in the eighties. If you would like to explore the world of Rodney for yourself and wish him happy birthday in person then drop an email to email@example.com to arrange a visit.
At first, the infant…
Then the whining schoolboy…
And then the lover…
Then a soldier…
And then the justice…
Rodney as he will be in 2046
