Back from London, where I was over the week-end to attend the opening of “Tomorrow’s World” at Atom Gallery.
The exhibition runs through 27th of January, so there’s still plenty of time for you to go see it.
It’s a very small exhibition, but it’s got some really cool art displayed.
I didn’t manage to make good pictures, so here some shabby looking ones.
I don’t have much pictures of London, because I mostly walked around.
I went to the Tate, which is always nice, although admittedly didn’t really see something that touched me much. Their free exhibit were mostly works I either knew or didn’t care for. And the swings installation may be fun, but it completely misses my art sensibility.
I also went with a friend to House of Vans to see Chroma, however that was a bummer. I utterly liked the place and it was fun just searching for it around waterloo, it’s a bit underground, so it makes you feel like you’re on an adventure. The exhibition itself really wasn’t one at all though.
PURPLE, JOHN AKOMFRAH
I also spent an afternoon at the Barbican, and while I did not see Basquiat, which is absolutely not the kind of art I enjoy, I saw the movie/installation/video series “Purple” from John Akomfrah which I loved.
It’s about the Anthropocene and (besides a weird surfer guy who really comes out of nowhere and I’d rather never had in the movie series), it was quite powerful. I did actually cry.
You sit in front of six screens that loosely tells the story of life and the impact of human activities on humanity and the environment.
I highly recommend it. Plus, it’s free.
The Barbican also has a cool botanical garden that I enjoyed. Sadly, and probably because it was freezing in there and well… the fact that it doubles as a restaurant/café, it lacked small animals and bugs.
GALLERY25 : RED
The sculpture “I Can : Passion” is part of it has been sold, but you still can get a print of it, if you’d like.
It might be an online exhibition, but it took me a while to get my work featured there. I tried a couple of times beginning of 2017, and granted, my work was not quite as coherent back then, but still it wasn’t awful either. So I’m rather pleased that it got accepted this time.
It just keeps me motivated to keep in the direction I’m headed and confirms that I can’t be completely wrong with my artistic research.
Ok, that’s about it.
