WhiteCube_Overton_4
Virginia Overton’s show at Mason’s Yard improvises with lengths of rough cut white wood. In the ground floor gallery they are flexed between opposing corners of ceiling and floor to create a dark rustic shelter. In the larger lower gallery the same wooden planks have been used to create long open-ended boxes hung from the ceiling, perfectly balanced on cables and nylon straps. In the smaller lobby planks are stacked in a corner one on top of another in a herringbone pattern. Read More >

Alibis: Sigmar Polke 1963 – 2010

Tate_SigmarPolke_5
Polke’s work covers drawing, painting, print, photography, film, sculpture and everything in between. He seems to have had an endless appetite and energy, creating a vast body of work unrestricted by the established rules of convention. One process or practice bled into another, often building complex, layered and chaotic images. You could say he was a pop-artists, or a situationist, or an abstract expressionist, or a graphic designer. But from the show it seems he did his own thing, whatever he felt like, until he stopped doing that and moved on to the something else. Read More >
