Faces, such long white faces (again)
The Biscuit Factory (London)
You could hear me swearing slightly to myself when I walked out of the Bermondsey Tube station and realizing that this is not the space for bling, bling Chanel and Mulberry. Why did I not do a simpler entre into the world of surveillance cameras. Truth be told I did feel quite out of place, to the state workers hilarious "help this poor girl" rants...
Oh, well I finally found the old Bisquit Factory where an exhibit of young artists and their recent work (within the last three years) are shown.
The V22 is priding themselves on a 50,000 square feet exhibition space, and it is excellent. This must be a dream come through for young artists to bring forth their art in such a space.
Why then, does most of the Art look hurried and unfinished? Walking through the space I am filled with dissappointment. Is this it? Is this what 35 Young London Artists wants to show us? I am sorry but I have prided myself on not criticizing new talent... but here I saw a badly used space with a lot of half finished work.
Here are the pieces I could come close to calling highlights:
The building is divided into 4 sections. The 3rd below definitely had the stronger work;
Alice Channer (Unsure if this is the correct artist)
This might be my favorite, at least the most interesting and unique piece.
This woven piece must be the most labor intensive work of the exhibit. Different details at the back.
I am sorry if I have been ranting a bit myself here...I just wish these Young Artists would have a bit more fun creating... the space is there. GO FOR IT!!!
