Curated London

The last New Order exhibition presented work that was criticised by many for being too avant garde. This time around, it feels like Mr Saatchi has gone too far in the other direction. The subject matter and the media are much more basic - possibly a little too basic. A few pieces stand out: Virgile Ittah’s wax and marble dust sculptures, in particular, are both chilling and engaging. Martine Poppe’s ghostly photographs are also intriguing, if a little flat. In contrast with the splendid Body Language exhibition on the lower floors, New Order feels lacklustre and disappointing. For more of the latest art news and reviews, check out www.curatedlondon.co.uk
