- This event has passed.
UPDATE: Wednesday 18th March 2020.
Due to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, Elephant West is temporarily closed and as such, Insanity Fair has been postponed until we re-open. Stay tuned as we shall launch a virtual gallery of the current show for everyone to enjoy and view in the coming days.
We are delighted to announce, Insanity Fair, the first exhibition of work in London by artist Zoobs Ansari since his move to Los Angeles in 2014. Famed internationally for his striking multi-media artworks, which range from video and photography to collage and painting, Insanity Fair is an opportunity for London audiences to see a collection of more than thirty works created by Zoobs over the last 6 years.
The starting point for Insanity Fair is the notorious quote from Andy Warhol; ‘In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes’ – a prophecy which has translated for many raised on the 24-hour media of our digital age into an aspirational life-goal worth having. Zoobs turns a dark mirror on this obsession with celebrity and asks if the reality of fame might really be a price worth paying?
All works featured in Insanity Fair will be available for purchase POA.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully illustrated publication, including an interview with Zoobs Ansari by Dr Jean Wainwright. A series of screenings, talks and performances featuring the artist will be announced in 2020.
