with the recent opening of the retrospective exhibition on caribbean artist chris ofili at tate britain, charlie dark presents bring the noise, an event that has invited a collective of young british artists to create their own work in response to the art of ofili. amongst many of those invited was UK artist and designer insa who created ten-inch heels made from elephant dung entitled ‘anything goes when it comes to (s)hoes’. drawing from the signature style of ofili who often integrated elephant dung into his work, insa was not only interested in experimenting and integrating this material into his work but also was concerned with teaching himself how to work with a medium that at first may seem inappropriate. as part of bring the noise event, the design of insa was showcased at tate britain on march 14.
