Gallery run 3rd February

East to West via Parkland Walk.

Joachim Koester at Camden Arts Centre with video installations and plank walls. The performers on film do dance-like moves which awaken memories of imitating films as children.

Brick Lane

Bouchra Khalili at Lisson Gallery creates new maps of Europe with marker pen as he relates stories of people’s migration. There was a loud bellowing horn-like sound which I presumed to be a sound affect representing the arrival at a port, a major theme in this work.
It actually turned out to be workmen next door using some kind of heavy machinery as part of renovations.

Johanna Unzueta at Greengrassi with felt pipework. Part of the Condo gallery exchange project.

Brad Grievson at Arcadia Missa in Condo an art exchange project featuring International gallery artists in London galleries.

Tomoaki Suzuki of Corvi Mora with carved miniature figures.

John Latham of Lisson Gallery.

Laurence Weiner at Lisson Gallery with a text piece on a wall surrounding a rather elegantly pruned tree.

Karin Ruggaber of Greengrassi.

Gallery run 6th July

West through Burgess Park, Lambeth Bridge, Battersea Park to Wandsworth recycling depot. Bacon sandwich, then back east to Chelsea bridge, through Victoria arriving at Gagosian on Grosvenor Hill. Then run to Ibid Gallery, Rodeo Gallery, Sadie Coles HQ and back South over Lambeth Bridge. To Greengrassi, Corvi Mora and South London Gallery. Picked up a postcard artwork there and returned it to the artist’s gallery.

Mark Grotjahn at Gagosian with work that departs radically from his close studies of nature.

Raymond Pettibon at Sadie Coles HQ.

John Adamo at Ibid Gallery. Small ceramic models of biscuits (and crumbs).

Damian Ortega of White Cube showing at South London Gallery in Under the Same Sun. Sculpted tortillas.

Ian Law at Rodeo Gallery. Wrapped hospital screens placed in the very bright sunny corner of the gallery.

Gallery Runner was encouraged to take a postcard from Rivane Neuenschwander’s artwork by one of the gallery assistants at South London Gallery. Only catch is it must be sent on somewhere. Why not to her gallery #stephenfriedman?

Karinruggaber at Greengrassi with a wall assemblage.

Erika Verzutti of Alison Jacques showing at South London Gallery in Under the Same Sun.

Gallery Runner has seen plenty of these along the canals! Simon Ling at Greengrassi with paintings of piled debris on junk barges.
