Frieze Sculpture 2020 part 1 (re:view)

Welcome to a whole new adventure with... sculptures in the park! Frieze it up in this place and par-tay. Let us dive in!

I actually attended this last year in October but I guess it's better late than never. It felt slightly weird attending this time and I did notice that it was a few sculptures short of previous year entries but hey ho still here living for it. I do this once a year and I love the mindfulness of the nature coupled with the thought-provoking umm nature of the art pieces as they play off each other. 

1. L'Âge d'Or (Green & Red) - Gavin Turn

2. Sandwich - Sarah Lucas

3. Torso - Eric Fishchl 

4. Aurelius - Rebecca Warren

5. Ad Keywords - Fabio Lattanzi Antinori

6. Circle for Sally - Richard Long

Genders: Shaping and Breaking the Binary exhibition at Science Gallery (re:view)

Welcome to a whole new adventure with... genders! I actually went to this exhibition some time ago but what better time (and a lot of it) to get it up in this house. Let's dive in!

The exhibition is a journey I would say into the insights of different artists as they explore gender through their mediums. It's funny as it would seem to be a transcendence from what it would stand for in society or breaking down the notions and barriers. 

The exhibition programme is done in black and white which I'm guessing purposely plays on the irony that gender is not so much of that anymore. It's not about male or female, masculinity or feminity and physical biology but rather that it goes beyond. This is shown in each artist chosen mediums to convey this that each identifies their gender such as Cibelle Cavalli Bastos's IN≠BODY: EXXO/REAL(I)T.Y #aevtardeprogram

The exhibition serves as great education and insight into different aspects of genders such as Sadé Mica's Gotta do this first and Grace in the garms which used textile clothing to bind and the chest/breast which many trans men and non-binary people used to deal with body dysphoria. 

Proving more a versatile exhibition, it not only invites attendees to view art in an open way but it also seeks to involve from the virtual reality gaming experience of Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley's WE ARE HERE BECAUSE OF THOSE THAT ARE NOT to the social context of the spoken and smell experience of Sarah Jury, Behrooz Shahriari and Rachel Sutela, Elvia Wilk and Sissel Tolaas's nnother.

Double Take by It's Nice That and Coals Drop Yard

The artwork comes to life I find in its simplicity in the shape in forming larger structures that play with its environment in a very fun and quirky way. The colours and shape contrast with the architecture around it in its contrasting material and design. I feel like their presence provides a sense of invitation to interact with them as seen from parents taking pictures of the children on the structures.

There are specific viewpoints in which you can see a better view of how these artworks tantalise with its surroundings but of course, I didn't realise until a bit too late when I had to leave.

It's as if they're looking at you:
