      Walking into the most recent installation, Escapement, by Raqs Media Collective (Monica Narula, Jeebesh Bagchi, Shuddhabrata Sengupta)  is at first sight like walking into an airport waiting lounge. Twenty-seven oversized world-clocks encapsulate the Frith Street Gallery, marking all of the usual places—Hanoi, Mexico City, Johannesburg, New York City—and forcing viewers to immediately recognize society’s propensity for time and measure. The exhibition is small but great—successfully taking viewe... [more]

Posted 8/14/09

         With its summer group exhibition, Space Invader, Aicon Gallery brings together seven international artists from the United Kingdom, Scotland, India and Pakistan—in an exploration of one of philosopher Gaston Bachelard’s most favorite points of discussion—space. The exhibition asks viewers to reflect on the ways in which the spaces around us are constantly changing, warping internally and externally in a digital age. It suffers from a lack of cohesion, with two floors of seemingly di... [more]

London, June 2009 - Artslant's writer,  Ashley Vaughan, talked with Kate Hawkins about her varied and exciting work, collaborations and the eating of peas. Ashley Vaughan:  For your last exhibition at Bischoff Weiss, the gallery labeled you as a performance and video artist, yet you also work with painting and drawing. Where would you situate your practice?Kate Hawkins:  Perhaps somewhere in the middle? I try not to think about it too much although I would like to research more comprehensively in reg... [more]

          Zineb Sedira’s most recent show, Currents of Time, is an intensely aesthetic experience that transports viewers to a coastline in Mauritania through 17 new photographic light box works and a full-room installation. Working with the notions of migration, mobility and displacement, the artist brings to light the plight of the region, carefully balancing beauty and decay, desolation and prosperity. The Mauritanian coastline that Sedira captures, scattered with rusting ships, has become a... [more]

Posted 6/5/09

    When I walked into the immense white space of the South London Gallery, performance artist Marie Cool was sitting quietly at a table, pushing four white A4 sheets of paper together with such concentration, I thought the sheets would scatter to the floor, broken as concentration often is when pressed too far or held a little too long. This, I learned, was a work called Untitled (2006), and the papers never fell, even as the tension between them sent them up towards the ceiling. Untitled 2006-2... [more]

          Roland Barthes said that in order to tame the Photograph, one must banalize it until it is no longer confronted with an image in which it can mark itself, its scandal, its madness. With its most recent exhibition, The Photographers’ Gallery does just the opposite. The Photographic Object asks its artists to test the limits of photography—exploring the mad relations between it and other mediums and the potential of photography to exist between two and three dimensions. The exhib... [more]

Posted 5/5/09

        Cindy Sherman’s first UK exhibition since 2007 is small but memorable, curated by the artist and containing three large colour photographs made in 2008. The works continue the artist’s celebrated investigations into notions of gender, beauty and identity—Sherman filling the roles of both artist and model, as she has for the past 30 years. The works exhibited at Sprüth Magers are both mesmerizing and disconcerting. The subjects of all three portraits are strong, aristocratic women, who... [more]

Bar Italia 22 Frith StreetSoho, London W1D 4RFTel: 020 7437 4520 www.baritaliasoho.co.uk   A Soho favorite since 1923, Bar Italia is one of the few places in London to get a great cappuccino after 10pm. The small coffee bar is stocked with desserts, pastries and pizza, and while the coffee and food isn’t cheap—the atmosphere can’t be beat. Legend has it that John Logie Baird first demonstrated the television in a laboratory above the café in 1926, after years of (probably coffee-fueled) experim... [more]

        For Television, his fourth show at Sadie Coles HQ, Jim Lambie transforms the gallery into an engulfing optical environment. Influenced by everything from Op Art to junk to rock and roll, the exhibition quite literally swallows up visitors—in a good way.   Television acts as a super-installation, no artwork taking precedent over the other, and all working together to give viewers a chance to experience Lambie’s art, rather than simply seeing it. His work is invasive, almost confront... [more]
