So the chaos and art overload of Frieze week is over, but there’s still time to catch my picks for last week as all are still open.
But on to this week’s picks, which all close this week. Each one comes with a concise review to help you decide whether it’s for you:
Ryan Gander @ Lisson Gallery
A disturbing version of the Generation Games goes past the seated visitor, including a dead pigeon and a disembowelled teddy bear. Elsewhere the lower gallery has been filled with shingle from a beach. Welcome to the darkly humorous world of Ryan Gander.
Michael Landy: Breaking News @ Michael Landy Studio, Vyner Street
This off-site by Thomas Dane gallery is a room filled with the red and white associated with tabloids. Covering topics including politics, tabloid fodder headlines and general advice on life it’s a playful and energetic installation to explore.
Jonathan Zawada @ Beers London
These colourful works tremble and oscillate as viewers walk around them. This even happens when standing still as the little movements we make alter our perceptions of the work. These pieces have an obvious visual appeal and I like the idea of a work that never quite looks the same on every viewing.
Poor Man’s Picture Gallery @ Tate Britain
Tracing art back to where 3D all began, with stereoscopic works that gain depth when viewed with the provided lenses.
Viva Cuba @ Lumas gallery
Werner Pawlok captures the colour and the poverty of Cuba in these visually stunning photographs.
