On November 13, Guerrilla Zoo presented ‘Modern Panic VI’, an extraordinary patchwork of distraught urban mutants, comic sex toys, social caricatures, beheaded clowns, and unyielding live art provocateurs. Until November 22, they’ve taken over Hackney Road’s Apiary Studios – a surrealist gateway for London’s dark art connoisseurs and lovers of the grotesque.
Stand back and don’t panic as fearless Kayleigh O’Keefe opens the doors to her “Psychedelic Menstrual Hut”, Charlotte Bailey revolutionizes the once trusted art of embroidery and “craftivist” Carrie Reichardt unfolds the intricate patterns of her highly-politicised, rock’n’roll ceramics.
