I've become increasingly aware of how people find negative reviews so much more entertaining than positive reviews, and so I'm about to let everyone down. This is a really great show, and an unusual one, and interesting for lots of different reasons; but really one main one. It's also worth saying that the title/name of the exhibition really is fitting for the experience of seeing the show. The big main thing to say is it's a curated show, although Jens Hoffmann prefers the tag 'exhibition maker' t... [more]

It was afternoon. In Copenhagen. A charming, too-handsome-for-words mutual acquaintance relayed the news that Denmark had been crowned the richest country in the EU. I couldn’t vouch for this, but its capital appeared to be the most sustainable of all the conscientiously green cities I’d visited in northern Europe. Of course I wasn’t travelling all the way from America to Scandinavia for wind farms, organic elderberry juice, or even the first-time thrill of ordering drinks at an honest-to-God Ice Bar....

In his 1939 essay Not Looking at Pictures, EM Forster proposes that, “Pictures are not easy to look at. They generate private fantasies… in galleries so many of us go off into a laugh or a sigh or an amorous day-dream.” His observations might well have been made in response to the two photographs at the beginning of Thomas Struth’s retrospective at the Whitechapel Gallery. Drawn from the artist’s celebrated series of "museum photographs", the works show crowds of tourists staring up at Michelangel... [more]

Posted 12/14/10

In this group exhibition at Gerhardsen Gerner, twelve artists investigate contemporary attitudes toward nature.In their celebrated text "Dialektik der Aufklärung / Dialectic of Enlightenment” (1944), Theodor Adorno and Max Horkheimer write that “the fully enlightened Earth radiates disaster triumphant”. While this insight is now more than half a century old, it still rings true. We live in an age of disappearance: in a world with no blank spots left on the map, we are more likely to see somethi...

Struth’s work reconciles forms of documentation and contemplation. His most recent photographs offer a new experience for the viewer’s eye since most of us have not yet examined the interior of a reactor vessel, entered a space shuttle or walked around in a nuclear power station before; all places hidden from the public.Without knowing the location, it is impossible to acknowledge in which part of the world the image has been captured. In his new series the artist forces the eye be... [more]

Taking its title from a Lawrence Weiner work, As Long As It Lasts comprises works that contemplate impermanence and mortality, often from a personalized, humanist point of view. There is nothing fussy or overly sophisticated about this one. It talks the talk and walks the walk.  The show opens with Maurizio Cattelan's simple photograph of a pen that has just run out of ink, then proceeds to two poetic films  by William Kentridge and Guido Van der Werve, respectively. The latt... [more]
