Sometimes Making Something Leads to Nothing
I went to see this exhibition a couple of weeks ago...last week? Some time in the not so distant past anyway.
The exhibition takes the title from the Francis Alÿs film which features in the exhibition....it's about transformation. But also persistence and endurance. I was quite amazed that the artist manages to smoke a cigarette pretty much the whole time he is pushing the block of ice through Mexico City.
It also has work by Cornelia Parker (above) Callum Innes, Peter Liversidge, Iran do Espírito Santo and others.
The whole exhibition is witty and quite refreshing....definitely worth a visit.
the ingleby gallery website says things so much better than I ever could on a Sunday morning!
