Thomas Zipp: Planet Caravan. Is There Life After Death? a Futuristic World Fair

About

German artist Thomas Zipp's installations combine both abstract and figurative painting, drawing and sculpture to create fantastical installations verging on the eccentric and theatrical. Garnering inspiration from art history, politics, philosophy and popular culture, Zipp uses unlikely combinations of sources and genres to trace a sense of familiarity within the absurd. Zipp's concern with what he describes as 'the weirdness of mankind' has included nuclear fission, drugs, degenerate art, renaissance cosmology and Englishness. Through these subjects the artist exposes, with a dark sense of humour, ideas that held credence in the past but are now disproved or disbelieved. For his SLG exhibition, Thomas Zipp explores the tendency to seek all encompassing theories and models of the universe, and its inevitable failure, in an atmospheric and darkly humorous installation.
