Tabish Khan brings you five art exhibitions in London that you should visit during the week. Each one comes with a concise review to help you decide whether it’s for you.
1. Edouard Martinet @ Sladmore Contemporary
Impressively detailed and lifelike insect sculptures made from found car and motorcycle parts.
2. Marcel Broodthaers – A Decor: A Conquest and Bricks: 1966-1975 @ Michael Werner
A surreal and playful installation featuring racks of assault rifles and crustaceans playing cards.

Bitingly satirical street art shows this artist as more than just a one trick pony.
4. Tom Hunter: Axis Mundi @ Purdy Hicks

5. Aaron Young: Limited Exposure @ Massimo de Carlo

Huxley-Parlour gallery has just launched fourbythree, a new initiative that will award four emerging artists a fully-funded exhibition at the gallery’s project space in London’s West End. Huxley-Parlour will grant each artist £5000, from their annual profits, to realise their exhibition.
I’m standing on a shingle beach looking out to sea with the wind whipping at my face.
