  • Digital Detox – Day 7 | Milomade
    ignore the fact that I had a sore throat and runny nose and a bit of a cough but by Friday morning I had no energy left I got up and had a shower and then curled up on the sofa and refused to move We had a planned an early start as we wanted to walk to the Serpentine Gallery and then go to the Saatchi Gallery too but my body refused to move So Colin went in on his own whilst I convalesced on the sofa and tried to muster the energy to get up and get dressed It was good to have the extra sleep and the peace and quiet though I did get up eventually and decided to head into London and meet Colin at a small gallery that was showing a few pieces by Joseph Cornell So I headed in and had a bit of a wonder around poshville and all the expensive shops that I would never ever be caught dead in not much of a fashionista or at all label brand obsessed I m much happier in charity shops It was quite an amusing ramble amongst the streets littered with the fashion obsessed I stumbled upon the The Haunch of Venison gallery a very odd name and popped in to see what was on as I noticed the name Polly Morgan on the poster outside and I love her work Psychopomps is Polly Morgan s first solo exhibition at the Haunch of Venison gallery It consists of four suspended taxidermy sculptures within a very dark room lit with directional lights each poised between metamorphosis and flight This kind of reminded me of the hummingbird case we d seen at the Natural History Museum Also being exhibited was a load of work by the Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos someone I d never heard of I quite liked her work though The exhibition was entitled I Will Survive and I can only guess that it s taken from the Gloria Gaynor song There was no literature to accompany the exhibition so I didn t have any idea what it was all about The artist uses embroidery and crochet in her work and I wasn t very fond of the large sewn pieces that hung from walls and took over huge rooms but I did take a shine to the ceramic figures and objects covered in intricate crochet lace patterns It s quite odd to see something quite tacky like a large ceramic dog or crab covered in such detailed lace work it takes the tacky objuect into another realm The crochet lace fits like a glove over each object and the craftsmanship involved is quite impressive what it s all about I have no idea There was even a baby grand and stool covered in lace too all alone in a large room love it I wish I d had more time in here to find out more about the work but I had to

  • Digital Detox – Day 5 | Milomade
    Winter Warmth 2015 Work In Progress Digital Detox Day 5 27th August 2010 Wednesday we went along to the Tate Modern to see a couple of exhibitions namely Exposed Voyeurism Surveillance and the Camera and Francis Alÿs A Story of Deception both worth going to see I only knew of one work by Francis Alÿs but I d never seen it so this exhibition was a great surprise to me whereas the Exposed exhibition simply brought together a lot of work I d already seen before but within separate exhibitions books and documentaries I had only ever seen a postcard of the work Paradox of Praxis Sometimes Doing Something Leads to Nothing of a guy pushing a large ice block around the city of Mexico until it melted This was enough to get me interested in seeing the actual video and more work by this artist The exhibition was really well presented with large rooms devoted to different pieces of video work paintings and installations Large comfy sofa s were provided as some of the video work lasted longer than 30 minutes and some were on a loop and were so hilarious you had to sit and watch and then watch some more These were my four favourite pieces 1 Rehearsal I 1999 2001 in room 7 shows a red VW Beetle driving up a hill an image which is accompanied by a loud soundtrack of a brass band s rehearsal The driver was listening to a recording of the rehearsal and each time the band paused he stepped off the pedal so the pathetic little car rolled back down and the process continued without resolution 2 Paradox of Praxis I 1997 shows an absurd expenditure of effort as Alÿs pushed a block of ice around the Centre until it melted The subtitle of the work is Sometimes Doing Something Leads to Nothing an idea which speaks to the frustrated efforts of everyday Mexico City residents to improve their living conditions 3 For Re enactments 2000 he walked into a gun shop bought a weapon and carried it very visibly until he was arrested The next day somewhat implausibly he persuaded the police to take part in a reconstruction of the exact same events 4 In Patriotic Tales 1997 Alÿs leads a circle of sheep around the flagpole in the Zócalo the ceremonial square and the site of political rallies The action is based on an event in 1968 when civil servants were paraded in the city to show support for the government but bleated like sheep to protest their subservience This is another superb exhibition so vast with room after room full of amazing images and video that I didn t think it was going to end Exposed offers a fascinating look at pictures made on the sly without the explicit permission of the people depicted With photographs from the late nineteenth century to present day the pictures present a shocking illuminating and witty perspective on iconic and taboo
