Guerrilla Zoo’s acclaimed Modern Panic exhibition curated by James Elphick returns for it’s fourth year.The show features a unique collection of over 60 of today’s foremost, surreal, controversial & provocative international artists and live art’s practitioners.
First artists to be announced at Modern Panic IIII includes 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.
With more artists to be announced soon.
