Drawing by David Shrigley and Keren Cytter. A simple but effective film and miniature sculptures in a show called Junkie. Lastly, yellow voids.
At Pace Gallery. Wang Guangle presents much brighter vods than the black openings in earlier work. The X shape comes from successive layering.
Keren Cytter, Ocean, at Pilar Corrias. Much of the art making paraphernalia becomes subject matter along with the animals and organisms expected from the title.
David Shrigley at Stephen Friedman.
David Shrigley, my favourite in the 2013 Turner Prize shortlist, exhibiting at Stephen Friedman. 4th plinth commission is on its way later in the year.
This lovely little video piece looks like micro-organisms being gently wafted around in a fluid. Tiny points of light beat rhythmically. But it is actually the artist’s own heartbeat and the moving points of light, we are told, come from a glitzy reflective top that moves gently to the rhythm.
Jac Leirner at White Cube with a show called Junkie. The spirit levels are still present in the new show and now mixed with drug paraphernalia. The tiny head is made of cocaine.
