ZOO

A live art installation by Adrian+Shane

September 19th - 22th at Filmbase, as part of Tiger Dublin Fringe 2016


Irish pop art duo invite the public to join them in collaborating on their latest collection:



Pop art duo, Adrian+Shane invite the public to join forces with them in collaborating on their latest project, ‘ZOO’, an art experiment for everyone using social media for inspiration. Running as part of Tiger Dublin Fringe 2016, ‘ZOO’ runs from 19th to 22nd September, at Dublin’s city centre art space, Filmbase.

Created as an immersive live experience, offering viewers a rare chance to watch the duo at work ­ either in person or via online streaming. ‘ZOO’ provides members of the public with a way of watchin g and working with Ireland’s leading pop artists, Adrian+Shane. Encouraged to bring along any belongings which the artists will in turn use as inspiration for their latest artwork ­ whether this be an old toy, items of clothing or novelty telephones, where these personal items may be used in photographic self portraits created in their own studio by the artists, which has been opened to the public for the first time.

From this Adrian+Shane will draw inspiration for their ‘Fringe’ themed ‘ZOO’ and create entire artworks which will go on sale immediately after they’re made. As Adrian+Shane say themselves, it’s freshly baked art.’
Adrian+Shane have been creating art together for over 18 years. They specialise in pop art, with a variety of mediums, from paint, to collage, photos and video. They use their art to comment on religion, sexuality, politics and have exhibited around the world including Dublin, London, New York, Berlin, L.A., Barcelona, San Francisco.

The idea for the ZOO project came over lunch one day. The duo realised that thanks to social media outlets such as Facebook and Snapchat, these days everyone wants to be heard. The public wants to feel like their voice matters. With this in mind, the artists began to think of a way to include contributions from the public in their art.

Throughout the four day run, the artists studio will welcome a selection of invited guest visitors who will become the artists muse for a time.

From midday on 19th September, Adrian+Shane invite everyone to come down and join in their latest interactive art experiment, or follow its progress via social media; Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, Facebook, Youtube, etc.

‘ZOO’ is a FREE unticketed event & will run daily from 12:00 ­- 19:00 / 19th ­- 22nd September 2016 at Dublin’s Filmbase, Curved St, Temple Bar, Dublin 2, Ireland, D02 PC43

Hares On The March

Added on by Adrian and Shane.

The ‘Hares on the March’ project will see a ‘Gathering’ of 110 3ft tall Hares being designed and beautifully created by an eclectic range of talented Irish artists.

Each unique hare will sit on top of a stylish 4ft tall plinth; these will be located in public accessible places and sold after in a Live Auction event and online in order to raise much needed funds for families of babies with brain damage nationwide. We anticipate that the Hares on the March project will positively contribute to the economic, cultural and social life of the Dublin City, whilst at the same time raising significant funds to support the invaluable work undertaken by The Jack & Jill Foundation.

Adrian+Shane's hare, entitled 'Audience' is on display at the Lighthouse Cinema, Dublin from 22nd January to 29th February 2016.

When I Walk In Your Shoes

Added on by Adrian and Shane.
Contemporary Irish artists Adrian+Shane announce their first London showcase at 'When I Walk In Your Shoes' exhibition with pieces inspired by the late singer Amy Winehouse. Opening at London Westbank Gallery from 25th to 30th September, proceeds from inspired artworks sold will go directly to the Amy Winehouse Foundation.

Adrian+Shane will proudly be contributing exclusive pieces towards an artistic celebration of Amy Winehouse, along with 20 other artists including Dita Von Teese, Pure Evil and Scroobius Pip, who have been hand-picked and curated by Henry Hate, Amy's tattooist and friend. The show 'When I Walk In Your Shoes' is named after the first verse of Amy Winehouse’s song ‘Help Yourself’ and the catalogue will feature quotes of walking in someone else’s shoes from the exhibiting artists.

Pieces by Adrian+Shane will include 'HEART' constructed from Converse trainers, as well as 3 original and unique paintings inspired by Amy Winehouse entitled 'PIN UP', made using acrylic, spray paint and screen print on paper.


Adrian+Shane commented, “Amy Winehouse is more than a musician; everything from her sound, fashion choices and lifestyle made an impact on an entire generation. Her iconic status makes her the perfect muse for this exhibition and is a wonderful way to raise money for charity in her honour. We’re immensely excited to be a part of this show and can’t imagine a more inspiring way to mark our debut on the London art scene.”

Following a private viewing on 25th September supported by Converse, 'When I Walk In Your Shoes' opens to the general public on Friday 26th September, offering fans the chance to join cutting edge artists in paying tribute to a colourful and unique musical talent in the heart of London. All proceeds raised from the sale of Amy inspired artworks and Converse pieces will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
