Gimme More? Britney now a work of art

  • 1 October 2007

Britney Spears’ tumultuous lifestyle over the past few years has been immortalised by an exhibition dedicated entirely to some of the singer’s more extreme antics.

More than 50 pieces of art have been installed at a Hollywood gallery, celebrating her 'bubblegum, pop princess years' as well as her less successful outings.

Artists contributing to the World of Wonder art gallery produced works ranging from a portrait of the singer created from chewed bubble gum to another based on a paparazzi picture of her leaving a car with no underwear on.

The Just Britney exhibition has been put together by Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbatos and is running through early October.

Steven Corfe, co-curator of the show, said the artists had chosen to portray the singer from one end of the spectrum to the other.

'People absolutely adored her and wanted to celebrate her bubblegum, pop princess years. Or, they thought she was an irresponsible mother or wanted to play up the drug side of things.'

He added: 'She personifies our obsession with celebrity culture, and it’s an obsession that won’t die down no matter how far she goes off the rail.'
