Three rooms into the modern art section of the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya the film Tide Table is projected on the wall. It’s a typical William Kentridge piece: animated black and white drawings, frolicking bathers are observed by Ghadhafi-like generals, a cow is slaughtered in a cabana, lots of political innuendo. Even though the film is combined with a couple of drawings by the South African artist, it’s pretty much a stand-alone presentation. It lacks the kind of conte... [more]

Mat Collishaw’s The End Of Innocence was not produced for Dilston Grove (the work, in some form or another, has been on show for several years), but its setting there is apropos; a former Protestant mission church, it lends the work a heavy air, the Godly kind of gravitas that a milquetoast gallery space might lack. Collishaw's most famous work, a detail of a gunshot wound, had the prosaic title of Bullet Hole, though this work's title of innocence lost would suit that vision just fine, too (the... [more]

      A Peeping Tom – someone who pries, who looks when it is inappropriate to do so, who is curious with a side of sleaze.  It is a phrase with negative connotations and implications of unpleasantness and preying on the vulnerable.  Is it a phrase we should use in the context of contemporary artists?  Perhaps.  Many are drawn to issues that make their viewers uncomfortable, and many look at the world in a way that the rest of us try to avoid.  But do they look because they want to,...

      For his first solo exhibition in Berlin, British artist Mat Collishaw presents a corrupted digital manipulation of Francis Bacon's Pope Innocent X, itself famously appropriated from a Velazquez original. Entitled The End of Innocence and projected on a monumental scale, Collishaw's rendering of the iconic portrait presents a densely striated image, its forms constantly dissolving and reconstituting in the manner of the 'digital rain' popularised by the Matrix film trilogy.In stark contrast t...
