This event has been and gone.
‘Imitation’ is the premier solo show from Lucy Sparrow. It is the art-world turned soft and subverted into a comedic look at how craft meets conceptual. Ranging from the works of Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin to Mondrian and Grayson Perry, Lucy Sparrow is taking the successful and making it her own. ‘Imitation’ is a homage in part to the original ‘Sensation’ show which exploded onto the art scene in September 1997.
Enthralled and inspired by Saatchi's 'Sensation' Show as a young art student, Lucy Sparrow has created a respected body of work in celebration to her childhood heroes, whilst adding a fine cynical twist of humour that she has become known for ever since emerging onto the London art scene. With rumours of a full-size shark immortalized in felt and woollen fabrics and a chastity-ridden Emin bed, 'Imitation' promises to deliver a grand oeuvre with the utmost flattery. Where else could you see a murderess immortalised Warhol style?
A bright, bold and sensational first show will pull you in with its satirical observations and sheer wonder'
Runs 2-6 April. There is also a VIP preview on 1st April at 7:00pm and late night opening on Thurs 5th April.
