Joan Cornellà solo in Shoreditch (ENG)

Reality is quite creepy”

Today I wandered around my favourite area of London: the vibrant, ever changing Shoredich, my street art paradise.

I visited the solo exhibition of the Barcelona-based illustrator and cartoonist Joan Cornellà (hosted at Hoxton Arches till October 1st).

Joan Cornellà: morbid, unsettling, sinister, flat-out offensive and provoking, unconventional, unnerving, cynic, coarse, truly sincere.

Me. Yep, I’m a selfie addicted.

This particular painting made me remember an article read the evening before about the Grenfell Tower disaster, in which the survivors asked the people to stop coming there and making selfies in front of the tower block where eighty people have died.

“Everything from our unnatural connection to social media and masturbatory selfie culture to political topics such abortion, addiction and gender issues – no subject is off limits.” (from the exhibition’s panel)
