Like shingles on the sea shore the latest installation in Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall crunches under foot. Chinese artist & activist Ai Weiwei has dumped 150 metric tonnes of individually painted porcelain sun flower seeds across the hall’s floor. Made in China by workers at a factory in the city of Jingdezhen, the 100 million seeds simply represent the world’s complexity.  The grey mass of the ‘They’ made up of unique individuals that Weiwei likens to the vast sea of communicated ideas that is...

Self Harm Averted  
by
10/4/10 Posted 10/4/10

The numbers of the anti-conceptual art group, The Stuckists, swelled for their annual protest on the steps of Tate Britain at this year's Turner Prize exhibition opening by press photographers refusing to ply their trade. The photographers were boycotting the exhibition in response to Tate Britain’s insistence that they sign a form that prohibited them from publishing any images or words which would "result in any adverse publicity" for the Tate. As The Times photographer Richard Pohle said “We... [more]

by
Betsy Dadd, Jane Edden, Kleio Gizeli, Tim Lewis at Flowers Central August 11th, 2010 - September 11th, 2010
Posted 9/7/10

Flowers gallery in the heart of the west end currently has not one but two intriguing  exhibitions on at the moment. When other galleries are slowing down in the summer months or just showing works they have in stock flowers gallery is coming alive (quite literally with some of the pieces of animated works).                 On the ground level is a show that any lover of photography should see. It has iconic and resonating images from Edward Burtynsky, Nadav Kander & Robert Polidori. The paint... [more]

THE EMPTY QUARTER  
by
Jedediah Caesar, Naheed Raza at Bloomberg Space May 28th, 2010 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM
Posted 6/20/10

COMMA's latest double-header couple are Jedediah Caesar and Naheed Raza, two artists interested in landscape, transience and tactility. Sand is a new film by Raza, depicting the desert of the Empty Quarter, one of the largest expanses of sand in the world. Its 650,000 square kilometers stretches across Saudi Arabia, Oman, United Arab Emirates and Yemen, more than the combined land areas of Belgium, the Netherlands and France. But the presence of this vast expanse is seldom felt in the minutiae... [more]

Frieze Frame on Barham

(Excerpt from 'Anna Barham' by Colin Perry posted in Frieze issue 131, May 2010. Found on http://www.annabarham.net/texts/colinperryfrieze.html) Thinking through Anna Barham's language games... The 19th-century proto-surrealist playwright Alfred Jarry once said: 'We shall not have succeeded in demolishing everything unless we demolish even the ruins. But the only way I can see of doing that is to use them to put a lot of fine, well-designed buildings.' The early history of the 20th - century... [more]

Martin Honert: Bedtime Story

Martin Honert, Schlafsaal, 2009.

The programme is curated by Sacha Craddock (the chair of New Contemporaries and an ex Turner Prize judge) and Vanessa Desclaux (a critic who has writes for a number of publications, but you may recognise her from A:N). It is fast paced, with each show lasting only a few... [more]

Plplplp Celeste Bousier-Mougenot: Free Bird!  
by
Céleste Boursier-Mougenot at Barbican Art Gallery February 27th, 2010 - May 23rd, 2010
Posted 4/25/10

The Barbican's Curve space is currently home to a number of zebra finches and some electric guitars. The instruments, horizontally mounted at the bulbous end of the room, are live and, depending on the movement of the feathered composers present, emit sound that is briefly looped through a delay effects pedal positioned out of sight. Depending on the time you enter the show, you may encounter a sparse, Pink Floyd-esque soundscape, or something more akin to Led Zeppelin, should a bird come o... [more]

Plplplp Art Review: Aviary  
by
Céleste Boursier-Mougenot at Barbican Art Gallery February 27th, 2010 - May 23rd, 2010
Posted 4/19/10

In a gloriously original and creative move, Céleste Boursier-Mougenot’s first UK solo exhibition taps into an audiovisual buffet of nature.  At the Barbican’s ‘Aviary’, visitors find themselves unwitting participants in a dance of nature as birds ‘perform’ in an art installation. A dark space opens into a cheerful seaside promenade, complete with wooden decking and islands of sand and grass.  Curiously, Les Paul guitars, bass, and cymbals rest in these spaces.  As your senses adjust to the surro...

(Excerpt from "Tate Modern Unilever series: Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster's grand design", October 2008.  Found on http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/art/3561934/Tate-Modern-Unilever-series-Dominique-Gonzalez-Foersters-grand-design.html)   Mystery surrounds the nature of the latest installation in the Tate Modern's Turbine Hall. But its creator, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, can reveal that it is hugely ambitious. She talks to Alastair Sooke. 'Some months ago, I used to wake up in the silence... [more]

Untitlede7i6 Robert Kusmirowski: Bunker  
by
Robert Kusmirowski at Barbican Art Gallery September 30th, 2009 - January 10th, 2010
Posted 1/7/10

Having ostensibly hollowed out subterranean passageways beneath the Barbican, Robert Kusmirowski’s creation manipulates the senses for an emotional evocation of time and place.  The Polish artist’s recreation of a World War Two bunker, his first UK solo exhibit, evokes a harrowing wartime narrative. From the onset, it’s clear an affecting experience is being orchestrated, as you face the gloom beyond a rusted metal doorway etched in heavy concrete façade.  A strong sense of exploration into the...

Keinholz_s032 Kienholz: ‘The Hoerengracht’  
by
Ed and Nancy Kienholz at National Gallery November 18th, 2009 - February 21st, 2010
Posted 1/7/10

Conspicuous amongst the classical paintings at the National Gallery, challenging issues permeate its first modern installation, a recreation of Amsterdam’s Red Light District.  Prostitution continues to inspire strong reactions, prompting artistic interpretation over the centuries, evidenced here by paintings from 17th century Dutch artists. Conceived by American artists Ed Kienholz and Nancy Reddin Kienholz in 1983-8, whose controversial depictions of taboo subjects have influenced contemporary... [more]
