I’m currently preparing for a big show at the Apiary Studios in London that looks set to be an absolute riot!
James Elphick of Guerrilla Zoo is curating his fourth Modern Panic exhibition, a unique collection of over 60 surreal, controversial & provocative international artists/live art’s practitioners all in one space for nine head-spinning days of surreal and immersive PANIC.
I’ll exhibiting a few of my favourite pieces along with some new ones that I’m working on for the show.
The private view is on the 8th of November with a limited number of tickets available on general sale. The show will be open to the Public between the 9th and the 17th of November.
Here’s a little excerpt from the website..
“First artists to be announced at Modern Panic IV include rare comic art by visionary cult film maker Alejandro Jodorowsky, Cuban social agitator Erik Ravelo (the man behind United Colours of Benetton’s UnHate campaign, which featured doctored photos of world leaders making out) features his powerful portraits of lost childhood which have been banned & blocked by facebook, the darkly surreal and dystopian sculptures of Parisian Paul Toupet, Italian live artist and technology hacker Francesca Fini, rebellious civil disorder inspired molotov art of Manuel and Max which went viral during the Turkey uprising, and the magic, medicine and religion inspired works of UK artist Lorraine Clarke.
Alongside are insurgent rising stars, the astonishingly realistic work of Sara Le Roy & Rachael Berry, Lucy Sparrow‘s witty and cynically fantastical felt creations, and the transformatively baroque and visceral films of Lauren Jane Williams.
International contributors to look out for are the disturbingly beautiful photographs of French artist Nihil, Spanish artist Celia Arias‘s juxtaposed sacred and profane creatures, and the miniature microchip masterpieces of USA based Yuri Zupančič.”
Last week Guerrilla Zoo announced that performance legend himself Marilyn Manson had been added to the already impressive bill of international artists. Very exciting indeed. I’ve just been trawling through the line-up finding web links for this update and MY GOODNESS there’s some awesome work in there! Well worth a few clicks if you have a moment. This show just keeps getting more and more exciting!
