Gallery run 22nd November

Michael E Smith of Stuart Shave Modern Art with daily objects in unusual juxtapositions plus an unexpected theremin.

This week’s run has an extension panel to the map. It is via a lovely stretch of grassland called Parkland Walk. You enter at Highgate and exit at Finsbury Park with the illusion of having crossed from north west London to north east London in a matter of minutes. (In reality Highgate is not that far west, Finsbury Park is not that far East whilst the duration is nearer half an hour. This is the route of a disused tube line.

Incidental mobile homes on a Peckham Street.

Anselm Kiefer at White Cube with interesting vitrines that use cables to create the vegetal forms plus there are a few complicated looking equations written on the glass.

Trix and Robert Haussmann at Herald Street with colourful remakes of an iconic furniture design. There is also some mirror effect on the bases.

Patricia Tribe at Kate MacGarry with about twenty perfect brush strokes, and many rubbings out.

Christodoulos Panayiotou of Rodeo Gallery at Camden Arts Centre. These electricity poles had a few attachments on still and smelt pleasantly of creosote.

Leake Street.
