It is not often that strangers start talking to you in a gallery and pointing out some wording on a pot that they think you’ve missed.  Nor commenting on how they think Grayson’s humour doesn’t come across as well on TV as it does in his art.  The show certainly has people smiling as they read the detail on the pots and are faced with pink bicycles.  There are serious themes with Trump, May and Brexit but they are still fun.  Most popular ever – maybe not but pretty good even so.

Serpentine Galleries

Marc Chaimowicz is on at the Serpentine Gallery.  Very wide-ranging covering painting, sculpture, wallpaper and prototypes of furnishings.  Particularly liked the disco lit room with albums, glitter balls, shoes, furs, bottles, flowers etc all spread across the floor as if it is the aftermath of a great party.  Helen Marten (also in Turner Prize) is on at the Sackler.  She puts together sculptures from every day deconstructed objects.  If you like her work you can spend ages really staring at it; tipped to win the Turner. Just doesn’t photograph well.  Both exhibitions on until 20th November.

Transience gives us ordinary plain objects made unreal by using strong colours.  It also shows us how quickly these ordinary objects become obsolete.  We get a tape cassette, an old mobile and a new updated model, an old lighbulb and a new one; you find yourself wondering how long the torch and electrical sockets will remain.  Ends 14th February.

The SelgasCano Serpentine Pavilion 2015 is a series of vibrant plastic tunnels on a metal frame that change hue depending upon the light; the sun was out when we visited and pink and orange dominated.  Would love to go back and see it lit up at night.

Popped into the Serpentine Sackler Gallery when strolling through Hyde Park.  Never been in it before although admired the building by Zaha Hadid. Great exhibition by Julio Le Parc full of moving light displays and exhibits you that you can interact with.  On until February – I recommend dropping in and a bonus that it is free to get in.
