Review for Alex Perweiller / Brendan Lynch / Peter Sutherland, at White Cube Bermondsey until 1 June 2014.
There are times when White Cube's boundary-pushing curation results in a moment of brilliance. This is not one of those times. The work on display from these three artists varies considerably in subject and medium, but the tedium of the results is consistent.
Alex Perweiller has placed hand exercisers on top of stacked weight-lifting mats, next to a video of Niagara Falls. Peter Sutherland sticks photos onto rocks and plywood. Brendan Lynch uses abstract imagery of the White Cube itself to ask whether the gallery is more visually appealing than the art it contains. In three cases, the answer is a definite 'yes'.
