Hayward Gallery Project Space
In her first solo exhibition at a major institution, the British artist Jess Flood-Paddock (b.1977) presents a sculptural scenario that explores the historical and cultural specificity of moral behaviour, populist self-help texts, the links between anthropology and infotainment, and the comedy and tragedy of scale – specifically gigantism. Often concerned with the questions of what (and even who) it is acceptable to eat, the show takes its title from the 1995 Coolio song Gangsta’s Paradise. The phrase suggests a post-Utopia period – an Eden for the strong, or those willing to ignore the social contract in favour of naked self-interest.
