A live art installation by Adrian+Shane
September 19th – 22th at Filmbase, as part of Tiger Dublin Fringe 2016
Pop art duo, Adrian+Shane invite the public to join forces with them in collaborating on their latest project, ‘ZOO’, an art experiment for everyone using social media for inspiration. Running as part of Tiger Dublin Fringe 2016, ‘ZOO’ runs from 19th to 22nd September, at Dublin’s city centre art space, Filmbase.
Created as an immersive live experience, offering viewers a rare chance to watch the duo at work either in person or via online streaming. ‘ZOO’ provides members of the public with a way of watchin g and working with Ireland’s leading pop artists, Adrian+Shane. Encouraged to bring along any belongings which the artists will in turn use as inspiration for their latest artwork whether this be an old toy, items of clothing or novelty telephones, where these personal items may be used in photographic self portraits created in their own studio by the artists, which has been opened to the public for the first time.
From this Adrian+Shane will draw inspiration for their ‘Fringe’ themed ‘ZOO’ and create entire artworks which will go on sale immediately after they’re made. As Adrian+Shane say themselves, it’s ‘freshly baked art.’
Adrian+Shane have been creating art together for over 18 years. They specialise in pop art, with a variety of mediums, from paint, to collage, photos and video. They use their art to comment on religion, sexuality, politics and have exhibited around the world including Dublin, London, New York, Berlin, L.A., Barcelona, San Francisco.
The idea for the ZOO project came over lunch one day. The duo realised that thanks to social media outlets such as Facebook and Snapchat, these days everyone wants to be heard. The public wants to feel like their voice matters. With this in mind, the artists began to think of a way to include contributions from the public in their art.
Throughout the four day run, the artists studio will welcome a selection of invited guest visitors who will become the artists muse for a time.
From midday on 19th September, Adrian+Shane invite everyone to come down and join in their latest interactive art experiment, or follow its progress via social media; Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, Facebook, Youtube, etc.
‘ZOO’ is a FREE unticketed event & will run daily from 12:00 - 19:00 / 19th - 22nd September 2016 at Dublin’s Filmbase, Curved St, Temple Bar, Dublin 2, Ireland, D02 PC43
