I wish I'd had the chance to discover this exhibition by accident. However, inhabiting two floors of a building site off Tottenham Court Road, there is an exciting sense of discovery to this latest exhibition from Artangel that is undeniably potent even on a planned visit. Fragments of sculptures (or sculptures of fragments) - mostly figurative - are lined up in the open cavern, their bland plaster makeup reflecting the bare concrete of the site. There's something intensely satisfying in their regulatory arrangement, as if they are artefacts freshly excavated or they are strange components about to be used in the rebuilding. Artangel explain how Silver was inspired by Sigmund Freud’s collection of sculpture, and there are deeper layers of meaning to explore in terms of 'excavation' - ie of the mind. Although there’s a lot to take from this without delving into psychoanalytics. Go for a wonder around TCR, you never know what you might find!
