DAMIEN HIRST & FELIX GONZALEZ-TORRES | CANDY

Blain|Southern last night opened Candy, an exhibition bringing together the work of celebrated artists Damien Hirst & Felix Gonzalez-Torres.

Featured in this exhibition is Gonzalez-Torres’ “Untitled”, 1992, a unique sculpture made of candies individually wrapped in variously coloured cellophane. The Visual Candy paintings, which were made between 1993 and 1995, were created as a direct riposte to an art critic who had dismissed Hirst’s Spot Paintings as ‘just visual candy’.

The show runs until November 30th

Attended, Exhibition

Lazarides & The Vinyl Factory opened their compelling new off-site experience inviting sixteen artists to take over 180 The Strand, an ominous old office block in central London. “BRUTAL explores the brutality of the times we live in, how this is reflected in the objects around us and our perception of the world”. Definitely worth booking your place. And apologies for the sketchy photography, It was dark down there and we were being intimidated by loitering ninja kids.

Slipstream

I’ve been away recently on a bit of a break visiting relatives in Canada and stumbled across this amazing sculpture hanging from the roof of the Eaton Centre in downtown Toronto.

Having stood there and admired it for some time, I found out it was created by none other than London based Art & Design practice United Visual Artists and is made from 70 delicately suspended Prisms. If you like what you see above, I would suggest checking out their other work too!

I went away at the weekend to North Devon as part of a good friends Stag weekend in the delightful town of Combe Martin in North Devon. On our way back after what can only be described as an eventful weekend we thought we would go and check out Damien Hirst’s Verity sculpture in Ilfracombe, the next town over from where we stayed. It was definitely well worth seeing Hirst’s sculpture overlooking the sea towards Wales, almost like something out of Jason and the Argonauts. After this we came across small café called The Quay not far from the sculpture and thought we would have a coffee as a pick me up from the events of past couple of days.

After chatting to the manager he cleared up our ideas of who owned the place and yes it was non other than Hirst himself, above are some photos of his work dotted throughout the space & a wonderful view from one of two restaurants upstairs. Definitely well worth the visit.
