Guerrilla Zoo Present Modern Panic IIII
From Saturday the 9th until Sunday the 17th of November, Guerrilla Zoo invite you to step into their visually spectacular, awe inspiring and wonderfully weird world for the fourth instalment of their acclaimed exhibition, Modern Panic.
Curated by James Elphick, the show features a unique collection of over 60 of todays foremost surreal, controversial & provocative international artists and live arts practitioners. Taking place at Apiary Studios in Hackney, the first artists to be announced to be displaying at Modern Panic IIII 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.
Throughout the duration of the exhibition there will also be a number of live art performances by:
Francesca Fini, Tom Bresolin, Amy Kingsmill, Harrie Skully, Victor Ivanov, Andie Macario, Jack Cole and Tracey Meek.
