The former Central Post Office in Murcia housed some of the highlights of the biennial. Many of the works here invoked the idea of narratives based on fictional archival material. Simon Fujiwara’s work Phallusies (with Dai Jenkins), 2010, on the first floor of this semi-decrepit, still impressive building, for example, used the tale of a giant stone phallus allegedly found somewhere in the Arabian desert. It became an excuse for a cock-fest of an installation documenting Fujiwara’s c... [more]

Manifesta, Europe’s primary roaming biennial, opened in Murcia and Cartagena in Southern Spain on October 9th 2010.

Now that these boundaries have been overcome with the former Eastern Bl... [more]

In this 1950s concrete cultural complex, through Dan Graham’s glass pavilion, I can make out a bright orange form, flanked by specks bright blue. At the entrance to the Hayward Gallery, all I can see is a rabbit, drawn on the wall, accompanying the title of Jess Flood-Paddock’s exhibition ‘Gangsta’s Paradise,’ her third show in the l...

Einarsson-baton-71210 Gardar Eide Einarsson’s Penchant for Punk   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

As I walked through Gardar Eide Einarsson’s solo show in his native Oslo, a line by the indie pop group Razorlight became lodged in my head: “All my life …watching America.” Such a reference might not be entirely appropriate for Einarsson whose penchant is for hardcore punk, but the source of this synesthesia was clear: North American popular culture dominates the exhibition, from the inkjet images of a home-made NYPD Badge, 2010, and gun-toting policemen in Baton Exercise 1-9,...
