Miriam Elia: Reflections on the nature of comedy


Click to follow

The first solo show from London based artist and comedienne Miriam Elia will be exhibited at the Cob Gallery.

Elia is a visual artist and comedian, her work is diverse from radio comedy sketches, films and live stand-up, to collage, prints, photography and animation. Miriam's second art show entitled 'I Did It On My Own' opens at The Cob Gallery in Camden on Friday.

The exhibition presents Miriam as a maverick who straddles both the worlds of contemporary art and comedy, uniquely blending collage, installation, sculpture, books and live performance into a cocktail of mirth and creative ingenuity.

The show is an unorthodox addition to the contemporary exhibition scene, as the title "I Did it By my Own" suggests, containing many potent and humorous reflections on the nature of comedy, art and life, which showcase the playful, satirical talent of Miriam Elia.

The Cob are holding a series of comedy events to be held in the gallery space during the exhibition, for more information contact info@cobgallery.com

I Did it By My Own, at the Cob Gallery, London, 7th-28th September
