daft-apeth

daft-apeth is a project by musician and artist Sergio Pizzorno, also known as the creator of psychedelic rock band, Kasabian, which throws childhood iconography, memories, stream-of-consciousness thoughts and an absurd sense of humour into a motley of acidic, vivid artworks. A Leicesterian with Italian roots growing up in the 80s, Pizzorno’s practice delivers a quirky rendition of a nostalgia for this era’s classical British iconography, and draws from a visually detailed memory with sharp observational skills. Serge uses an expansive collection of media to present fragments of random overheard quotes, comic characters, arcade machines and 80’s television references.

Pizzorno acquaints the audience with his work by cleverly using quintessentially East Midlander colloquialisms and an abiding wink to a shared epoch of social and political solidity, turning his practice into a somewhat autobiographical narrative of an unequivocally British childhood influenced by after-school cartoons, visits to working men’s clubs and 80’s Ceefax pages.
