SHATTERED

Yesterday in the midst of shattered glass and life we traipsed round Bermondsey and Rotherhithe on a one man (and his dogwhatblogs) south london art map tour.

Yes, you’re right, we went on one before with the instagram folk.

We cant be originally cultural every day.

To be briefly vulgar you pay what you afford and then have a lovely time discover hidden gem galleries.

We first went the west lane south gallery and saw robert cary williams haunting/disturbing/marvellous blend of fashion and sculpture ‘Jackets for Hooligans.’

Then to vibe gallery for a collection of works around the concept of the Annulus…

Time to cut and paste…

The Annulus is a term used to describe the space between two concentric cylinders. The inner cylinder is the central core the outer cylinder, the periphery.

 

One can translate this idea of the space in between, to metaphorically describe the art world. For example we would locate the Damian Hirsts of the world close to the central core and we would locate those often described as outsider artists on the periphery. Our aim is to act as a vehicle with which to navigate the annulus.”

There you go then. Paint tubes on the floor. Like our house. Shards of glass on the floor. Like our house.

The next bit was awesome…

In the amazing v22 space we saw some performance art involving some pendulums…

Okay we’re not selling it again… Heres a vid…

Ok you have to be there…

It really is a tremendous use of the vastness of the space.

Where else? Finally the curiously cool worlds end space…

Pub stroke gallery. Lovely.

We like stuff about time and the painted over mirrors gave the boy wonder @albiestar a further chance to take a pic of himself… His favourite pastime.

We are so effortlessly cool.

Love,

Harleyxx
