Daniel Silver’s DIG

October 5, 2013


A version of this review was published as TimeOut’s Reader’s Review of the Week on Tuesday 15 October. I wish I’d had the chance to discover this exhibition by accident. Inhabiting two floors of a building site off Tottenham Court Road, this latest exhibition from Artangel builds on their reputation for taking art into unexpected […]

Paper at Saatchi

October 3, 2013


Just a quick note to say how much I enjoyed this exhibition. It’s a curious mix of works on paper and works made out of paper. The latter was far more interesting. There are some incredibly intricate and beautiful sculptures on display. From tiny and delicate trees constructed out of high street shopping bags, to […]

Rain Room at Barbican

December 7, 2012


This article was originally written for MouthLondon magazine It sounds like a hard sell: inviting Londoners out of the rain and into the… rain. But Rain Room is different. There’s no need to bring your brolly. It’s a fairly straightforward concept (I’m assured). Tucked away at the end of a long curved corridor, a rather clever grid […]

August 8, 2012


This article was originally written for MouthLondon magazine Deep inside the labyrinth of the poorly signposted Science Museum, an octagonal ring of screens display the looming faces of the Philharmonia Orchestra, and if you stand in its centre you can experience being utterly submerged in Holst’s The Planets, as music booms out from speakers on […]

The Museum of Everything‘s first exhibition was comprised of a collection of artworks created by relative unknowns, but chosen by leading artists, curators and cultural figures, such as Grayson Perry, Jarvis Cocker and Nick Cave. This innovative exhibition […]

Preview: Art in Large Doses

July 18, 2011


This article was originally written for MouthLondon magazine Many will be familiar with the health benefits that a pleasant view is believed to bring hospital patients, but what about other kinds of visual stimulation? Since its foundation in 1959, the charity Paintings in Hospitals has been providing artworks for a range of healthcare sites. The presence of an […]

Review: Kerry Tribe: Dead Star Light

July 3, 2011


This article was originally written for MouthLondon magazine A thin, black strip of audiotape, secured flush against the wall, whips round the gallery space and back again between two reel-to-reel decks, its movement almost undetectable. The speaker at one end emits the recorded memories of Milton Torres – a Cold-War pilot who was sent on a mission […]
