TATE Britain is hosting a side event entitled Bring the Noise that respond and resonate with the exhibition of Chris Ofili. Bring the Noise is a free event with limited capacity bringing together artists and musicians alike providing performances, events and workshops.
London’s writer and artist INSA was invited amongst many others to partake in the event and have produced an one of pair of Heels that is unusual to say the least. The piece is entitled “Anything goes when it comes to (s)hoes…”, a play on the lyrics from classic Big Daddy Kane track Pimpin’ Ain’t Easy which is referenced by Chris Ofili several times in his paintings. The highlight of the heels are the elephant dung that is used as the platform of the heels. INSA retraced the footsteps Chris Ofili made over 15 years ago and sourced dung from the same family of elephants that produced the dung used in Ofili’s infamous paintings of the nineties.
Also on display is another piece entitled “Only God and You Can Judge Me (Jumbo Edition)” along with works from other artists. Be sure to pop into TATE Britain to get a closer look.
