Chris Ofili: Paradise Lost
Paradise Lost is the exhibition catalog from the 2017 exhibition at David Zwirner Gallery, New York. The exhibition touches on themes of lost innocence, alienation, and desire.
In Paradise Lost, Ofili poses "the question of the sweetness of the song—is the sweeter song the song of the uncaged bird, or the song of the caged bird? And what that really is asking about liberation and constraint, and how that could potentially relate to being human."
