Philip Colbert: Lobsteropolis

An exciting opportunity to view the largest collection to date of works by Phillip Colbert – either in person, at the Saatchi Gallery, or virtually; through the eye’s of Colbert’s robot Lobster.

The exhibition explores themes of mass consumerism and references to contemporary culture and history, whilst his global reputation was established following the creation of his cartoon lobster persona.

‘Lobsteropolis’ is a response to the pandemic; believing that art in situ is so important to society, and a major part of a culture where people are free to do things for themselves. In his ‘splashy’ world of contemporary culture, Colbert explains the reasoning for his vision. “The lobster is my materialistic alter-ego. ‘Lobsteropolis’ is a vision of a sci-fi future, where, due to lockdowns, we have robot selves who can go and explore the physical world, while we remain indoors.” 

Entry is free, however pre-booking required to ensure social-distancing. Find out more here.
