Unfortunately did nothing for me. But the gallery space on the other hand is fantastic!

Slick, hollow, opportunistic, dare one say it, cynical art.- cashing on on the fashionabless, in some circles, of 'post colonial' discourses (Said's Orientalism, Myths of Primitivism, etc), of which it offers a Janet and John level illustration. A terrible show that left me not just cold but annoyed that public money had been wasted on it.


South London Gallery has shocked and sickened me with it's new exhibition of Rashid Johnson's work; a collection of day beds covered in the skins of brutalized, beautiful zebras. I urge anyone who is interested in making a stance against animal cruelty to contact the gallery and express their own thoughts and opinions about the work.
