1. Anni Leppala @ Purdy Hicks
A mastery in subtle photography in this solo show from one of my top picks at London Art Fair.

2. Christian Jankowski: Heavyweight History @ Lisson Gallery
Hilarious satire as Polish weightlifters take on the weight of history by trying to lift historical monuments.

x-ray

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.
