This week Thames and up to Hackney. Then Regent’s Canal to Limehouse.
Samson Kambalu at Kate MacGarry with an exhibition of situationist documents rephotographed in the Yale College Library. The originals had been controversially sold to the institution in an episode that embroiled their former owner Gianfranco Sanguinetti in criticism and lawsuits along with the present artist.
South Bank London skateboard and bike performance space.
Thilo Heinzmann at Carl Freedman Gallery with bright pigmented gestures on aluminium sheets that are highly resistant to the cuts that have been made to them.
Olivia Plender at Maureen Paley reinterpreting the causal sequences of our historical narratives. Tapestry called Brittania receiving her newest institution. These are where the artist sees much narrative thread-making happening.
Lynette Yiadom Boakye at Corvi Mora with individuals in contemplative situations.
Ik Joong Kang Floating Dreams on the River Thames. Having seen him the previous day in discussion at 5×15 Trinity Buoy Wharf, I knew he instigated and collected thousands of drawings from children. These are placed in large constructions on rivers usually which he sees as connectors not barriers.
Paolo Gioli at Wilkinson Gallery. It’s a camera! This show archives the three basic cameras used by the artist. Who needs a lens when a hole will do? As for a film feed, why not just give it a tug? On show mainly are the resulting experimental films and screen prints.
Gretchen Faust at Greengrassi with natural forms and cultural artefacts intermixed. This gold leaf piece in Autumn.
Richard Serra in the City.
