Walled Gardens in an Insane Eden: Sara Zanin Gallery, Rome, Italy

February 9 - March 25, 2017

Group Show curated by Marcelle Joseph and featuring artworks by Rebecca Ackroyd, Gabriella Boyd, Rhys Coren, Kira Freije, Marie Jacotey, Florence Peake and Zadie Xa. 

In line with the prevailing mood across Europe after an overthrow of political certainties in 2016, this exhibition curated by Marcelle Joseph features the artwork of seven London-based artists brought to Rome, many for the first time. Hijacking a phrase from The Drowned World, J.G. Ballard’s first science fiction novel and one of his London-based dystopic tales, Walled Gardens in an Insane Eden portrays the world we live in today - on the precipice but hopeful for a less fragile future.
