Zoobs Ansari Insanity Fair; Elephant West 62 Wood Lane London W12 7RH; March 13th - April 9th 2020; free
Insanity Fair is 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.
