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.
2. Christian Jankowski: Heavyweight History @ Lisson Gallery
Hilarious satire as Polish weightlifters take on the weight of history by trying to lift historical monuments.
3. X-Pose: Material and Surface @ Oxo Gallery
Breathtaking use of x-rays to create art from leaves to elephant skulls. Innovative use of this medium makes for unique works.
4. The Anatomy of Melancholy @ House of St Barnabas
Dr. Viktor Schroeder returns with a mix of skeletons and taxidermy in his modern day take on vanitas paintings.
5. Wael Shawky: Dictums @ Lisson Gallery
The highlight is a hypnotic video of black camels marching across the desert. Creating something balletic from creatures known for their inelegance.
