IT IS IS IT Silvia Ziranek

This exhibition celebrates Silvia Ziranek, the highly regarded Performance Artist who emerged on the London art scene in the late 1970s. Ziranek, who in effect is her art, is portrayed through a selection of the badges that accompany her performances and events, together with artwork for supporting materials and other items. The badges that are the main focus here – small items that carry the event title, which are variously descriptive, mysterious, wry, particular – are intended to complement, inform, intrigue. Here they are reproduced large-scale in the form of an installation, accompanied by the originals and other objects that describe and hint at her deceptively eccentric practice. www.silviaziranek.com

The artist’s sponsors include Sassoon and A Better Badge. Infinity gratitude to John at A Better Badge without whom the world would be a bleak and badgeless place.
