Exhibition Review - Dusadee Huntrakul:'To Dance Is To Be Everywhere' Chan + Hori Contemporary, Singapore till 8th October 2017.


Image of Chan + Hori Contemporary, Singapore with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.


A turn of the line, like an asymptote, may approach an indent in time."- Drenched Co.


Notes:  "Consider the Neck. A narrow connector whose shape and surface may evoke a season, a landscape or an architectural detail.  Think of the Neck, pale, scented, a recipient of a thousand kisses or a long slender snake that may suddenly slither up a wall dragging the whole body. Think of its gestural throwing lines, its dynamic volumes and the way its lies about the backbone. Think of the Neck when looking at Dusadee Huntrakul's art and his interest in meanings transfered through objects, gestures and forms. In this exhibition, the Neck is the creamy beacon that invites contemplation through the ages, an albatross full of metaphors slung around it, clinging on to an unwritten head and a trace of meaningness. Dusadee once made a film titled 'My Armpit's my Beer', but I am convinced he is a neck man. Fabulous " - Raj

Exhibition Review - Anne Samat:'SULTANATE IN THE EYE MONARCHY AT HEART' Richard Koh Fine Art, Kuala Lumpur till 21st August 2017.

Image of Richard Koh Fine Art, Kuala Lumpur with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.



Samat's weaves transcend the world of cloth."- Drenched Co.


Notes:  "Anne Samat weaves magical textiles. A patch of her traditional Malaysian 'songket' is the pulsating centre of a large exoskeleton of rakes and chains, and it is sending out thick feelers of thread, like taut twitching muscles, to reign in, to 'hook' into the gallery's whitewashed skin. Samat's works are alive, migrating, melding and becoming. And this is where lies the secret to their charisma - the vertiginous swoop you experience going from the mundane to the celestial. Her songkets are no longer just fit for kings. They are adorned by gods. " - FaSa

Exhibition Review - Anne Neukamp:'The Familiar Object' Marlborough Contemporary, New York till 24th June 2017.

Image of Marlborough Contemporary, New York with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.




Take off your Anschauung for a second, 
i need to unlock you
 a fading charm for our craven misgivings."- Drenched Co.


Notes:  "Sometimes, I am in my day and an image appears in my mind. Is that the same for you too? It is usually just a shape I have seen. Floating. Untethered. No emotions. No immediate relevance to what I am doing or thinking. I might be cleaning my brushes or stepping into the shower and there it is. A recent one was the odd reflection off a spoon sitting in a bowl of half-eaten cereal my daughter had abandoned rushing to get out of the door to school. There was no bowl, no table, no daughter, just a spoon and the odd way it caught the light. Why that spoon? No idea. Occasionally the image will come nested in other things or half of some things that interfere with it. Odd milieu of colors and light and objects that says nothing and signify little. I sometime wonder if this odd imagery will be the last thing I see. A flash of impending uselessness of things catching my last breath. I wonder if Neukamp hasn't somehow found a way to capture it." - Raj

Exhibition Review - Ann Cathrin November Høibo at Carl Freedman Gallery, London till 17th June 2017.

Image of Carl Freedman Gallery, London with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.


November Høibo's lost stitches in a fistful of thread gathered in around the memories of a spool."- Drenched Co.


Notes:  "November Høibo's weaves, slung across backs of chairs, draped across rails and stairs, fresh out of dark dusty closets, fill the room with the rustle of faint sighs. They have outlived their usefulness,  memories of warmth and fullness;  loose fists of tangles, reminders of a curve, a fit, an impression. Their stubborn excesses drive their weave and weft through gravity laden air, ballast that unravels but prevents them from falling out of our world , only further, deeper like a yearning that both shields you and drives you out of your skin. Loved 'My Friends 5'." - JayZee

Exhibition Review - Group show:'The problem with having a body / is that it always needs to be somewhere', The Approach, London till 14th May 2017.

Image of The Approach, London with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.


What exactly is it that needs shoring?"- Drenched Co.


Notes:  "My meanderings begin from and through the work of the only male artist in this group show. I am perched on a tide of bodily waters, sloshing, swirling, frothing, back and forth, in and out in rhythmic displacements of bodies, knocking back, unclogging channels, clearing paths. This beat  presses the body into potential, into colonised spaces, into the conflict between life as limited and life as continuity. I am witness to an impending tsunami of release and expression, heading a charge against an eon of assimilating the impact on the body made by a white male universe. Shored by the limits of the skin, a rhythm rises against the epidermal understanding of personhood, against the dynamics of visibility and occlusion and against designed movements of a conquered body set in time and space. The skin, frontier of the new resistance, in a battle of blows against tyranny is  chrysalides to colonised ghostly bodies and it is warping space into impossible bodies everywhere. What again is it that needs shoring?!" - FaSa

Exhibition Review - Mat Chivers:'Harmonic Distortion', PM/AM, London till 16th April 2017.

Image of PM/AM, London with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.


Art's new technology is a broken technology."- Drenched Co.
From Svetlana Boym's Off-Modern Manifesto.

Comment:  "Mat Chivers' encounters with machines surprises us. He is an accomplished conductor of his own fallibility. Engaging with information is an interminable process and translation is an impossibility. But Mat is persistent and his margin of error is his margin of freedom to create surprising art, to allow us an inroad into information, a way to digest it, inhabit it and make meaning from it. But these 'models' of 'clouds' are more - they are receptacles of dreams and longings and mysteries, ruins of some alternative history out of a universe of alternative outcomes, engaging with history in a way to place it in a new motion, open to the present. Fabulous.  I liked the Shibari inspired performance most." - Raj

Exhibition Review - Amelie von Wulffen:'The misjudged Bimpfi', Studio Voltaire, London till 2nd April 2017.

Image of Studio Voltaire, London with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.

The past stealing ballast of this light 
that still shines through to places unknown,
ruins that a nation carries in its heart,
putting more shadow in the shadows,
shattering a mirror to stare at ghosts."- Drenched Co.


Comment:  "There are shadows in Amelie's work, dark clouds that spread through her paintings, overcoming them, rising as though from some scene of an unatoned crime, filled with ghosts and spectres that do not die their own death. As a 'Nachgeborenen', perhaps Amelie is introducing us to the impossibility of mourning, leaving us with bottles of ether and somewhere in a place between consciousness and unconsciousness, filled with immovable obstacles to repentance and salvation. Or perhaps she is telling us about the traumatising loss of innocence and something  that may inaugurate the work of mourning. Perhaps Amelie is suggesting this through the example of Mann's hero in Doktor Faustus, by dropping harmony and counterpoint and a legacy that is univocal and given, and assembling her dark montages of memories in the rhythm of various painterly traditions, always equally fluid and disjointed.  Either that or Amelie is telling us that art is incurably sick and impotent against the monsters in us, foretelling perhaps a dark coming. I found her installation/sculpture especially interesting and revealing." - FaSa

Exhibition Review - Florian Roithmayr: 'ir re par sur', Bloomberg SPACE, London till 18th March 2017.

Image of Bloomberg SPACE, London with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.


Florian's reaches down into the religious substance out of which we are moulded."- Drenched Co.


Comment:  " I liken Florian's alchemical experiments to photography, as a kind of moulding, organising various forces to a state of equilibrium to a particular moment, when through the intermediary of all materials involved - human, chemical and mechanical, an imprint is taken, creating a world as it isn't. What is interesting here is the way Florian's gestures, his subjecthood, brings agency in the processes of subjectivation to the apparatus of flow and formlessness entering a dialogue with form, structure and systems.

Exhibition Review - Elpida Hadzi-Vasileva: 'An Intimate Gaze', Danielle Arnaud, London till 11th Feb 2017.

Image of Danielle Arnaud gallery, London with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.


Elpida is reaching in, searching,
takes apart landscapes, 
lifts open lush horizons, 
upends a purse, a stomach, a body,
watching it flame into momentary blossoms, 
a memory of breath and life burning flesh into a broken silence, 
a silence of the body used confounded by its use,
washed in odors and secrets of
a river that swallows all things."- Drenched Co.


Comment:
" Elpida's silky gauzes of silence, in their quivering eruptions,  peels back my gaze. Brilliant!" - JayZee

Exhibition Review - Christina Mackie, Richard Gasper, Kira Freije, Penny Andrea: 'God's Finger', Kinman gallery, London till 20th Jan 2017.

Image of Kinman gallery, London with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.


Act V - Putinescence"- Drenched Co.


Comment: "Imagine a bunch of artists finding the lost fifth and final act of Arthur Miller's 'The Crucible'. The one that is rumored to hint at the various hues of human forgetfulness and the fury of a returning orange Venus. Imagine that the artists have decided to get in on the act. The end of God's finger, 20th Jan 2017, will return America to its human sacrifices, to the mood and atmosphere of its Salem witch hunts and McCartyism.  Gasper fires the plot by bringing piles of dirt into the gallery, breaking into the landscapes that once expressed the qualities of moral grandeur and human destiny (the dirt is from Henry Moore Estates). Mackie's colors, used as a metaphor for knowledge, hint at the trouble many are having discerning facts, buried in layers of dirt. Freije’s sculpture is at once the unfolding comedy that is the youth left with a sinking ship, and an irreverent orange emperor, source of all sickness. Andrea finally provides the chatter and melancholia that accompanies this train wreck. It is, by all accounts, a dark foretelling." - FaSa

Exhibition Review - Bonnie Camplin, Camden Arts Centre, London till 15th Jan 2017.

Image of Camden Arts Centre, London with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.



Bonnie's esoterica of vibrating lines
caught in the curvature of receding minds."- Drenched Co.


Comment: "An outline for a story: Artist spends hundreds of hours over many years swimming in the vast and ancient eddies of existence, hoping to discover mystic correspondences from the other side. Nothing happens. The artist builds installations to open people's minds by showing them what she does everyday. She becomes successful perhaps because the Outside is no longer, usurped by  modernity's dissolving boundaries. The Inside (the inner life) is the new frontier in art. Artist continues to use oracular devices in the form of diagrams to open her mind. One day, a leak appears in her mind, one that connects her to the 'other' side. The vast unknown has returned her call and in the same shapes and forms she had been transmitting to it for years.  The artist frantically scribbles her thoughts down, relieved and breath-taken at the same time. She compiles her work and exhibits it. Each drawing, each diagram a message from the unknown and proof of its existence. Work of enormous importance to her and mankind in general. Unfortunately, no one can relate. People shun it. Art critics write it off. We are simply not ready." - FaSa

Exhibition Review - Peter Peri:'Uncting' Almine Rech Gallery, Savile Row London till 14th Jan 2017.

Image of Almine Rech Gallery, Savile Row London with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.


I found insane geometries and dissolving boundaries
in Peri's refractive index of modernity."- Drenched Co.


Comment: "In this deceptively sedate exhibition, Peter Peri creates a radical universe to explore the textures and structures characteristic of the experiences of the schizophrenic and the modernist artist. I marveled mostly at Peri's complex handling of illusionistic, irrational space through his hairy structures and his dense,organic mesh of lines. Layers of reality sit side by side in this show, the 'modern' and the schizophrenic acting as the mobile ready to assume any contours or texture to legitimise and valorise them. But there, in Peri's relatively static sculptures, we find something akin to an imbalance, something to find and ride into resistant universes, thwacking our heads against our animist projections. " - Raj

Exhibition Review - Antonis Pittas:'Shadows for Construction' narrative projects, London till 7th Jan 2017

Image of narrative projects, London with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.


“Set the present against some history that isn't regret,
hang it on the awkward motions of protest,
angle it to the invisible forces of upheavel,
leave it unfinished, to become whole again."
- Drenched Co.




Comment: "With a sleight of his hands, Pittas does away with specifics and places the revolutionary urges of the russian avant-gardes of the 20th century next to today's global politics.  He has me seeing references to recent post-truth era politics everywhere - e.g. shadow hands redirecting the light of the past in which the present is reinterpreted ; a giant discarded hand of an eternal monument to bygone ambitions set against the words of a Calais refugee; acutely polarised politics adorned in cheap gold kitsch! Pittas' gestures of the political hand both reveals and conceals new and interesting aspects of the geometry of the complex political space that we negotiate both inside and outside the gallery today. How very clever!" - FaSa

Exhibition Review - Hannah Levy and Michael Simpson:'Shall we sit, stand or kneel?' Marlborough Chelsea, New York till 3rd Dec 2016.

Image of Marlborough Chelsea, New York with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.


Denied of tiresome fixations,
it bends my body into incongruous places."
- Drenched Co.




Comment: "The emptiness in Simpson's paintings and Levy's chromed metal and silicone (recently escaped from their “design purgatory”) made me think of my local surgery's consultation rooms. And aptly enough both artists disassemble contexts in search of powers in their wonted seats, laying them bare through slick bits of archaeology. Being apparently free from bondage and semantic connections, I felt a strange familiarity  with these paintings and sculptures, due perhaps to their new potentials but also (funnily enough) to their inviolable relations to the body.

Exhibition Review - Levi Van Veluw:'the foundation' Rosenfeld Porcini, London till 26th Nov 2016.

Image of Rosenfeld Porcini, London with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.

I biro a profile clean,
mistaking shadows for symmetry,
lost in the scattering
coherence in curiosity."
- Drenched Co.



Comment: "My first intro to Van Veluw was in 2008 through photographs of his face with ballpoint marks. To me these were a piece of theatre concerned more about self-erasure then self-expression. In his later work 'The Origin of the Beginning', I started wondering if Van Veluw's work was not more about finding a place for himself and mankind in general within the grand scheme of nature and the divine. And this became clear in 'The Relativity of Matter' where Van Veluw becomes the accomplished maker of the wunderkammer, fingering perhaps at the idea behind the museums today and their collections. And here again he attempts to erase out his profile from his darkened archive rooms, beautifully challenging ideas of the formation, preservation and interpretation of an impossible collection. Fabulous." - Raj

Exhibition Review - Toby Ziegler:'Post-Human Paradise' Simon Lee Gallery, London till 26th Nov 2016.

Image of Simon Lee Gallery, London with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.

“With Ziegler, I wrestle the reins of my gaze,
from the humming wires of my canvas."
- Drenched Co.




Comment: "Much of the content in Ziegler's work is located in his process, a parallel of which can be found in the lossy compression and decompression of images in today's digital communication technologies. Ziegler's compression and flattening, while abandoning illusion, is enriched by allusion. But what is more interesting is how Ziegler has become this embodiment of Villem Flusser's post human, who instead of being a mere function of his different 'apparatuses', reveals their rule of play and the programmatic worldview of absurd coincidence. Now to become the masters of these out-of-body entities and play with the programmes that play with us!" - FaSa

Exhibition Review - Orla Barry:'Breaking Rainbows' Temple Bar Gallery, Dublin till 5th Nov 2016.

Image of Temple Bar Gallery, Dublin with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.


Barry weaves bloodlines through her flock,
the oral and the written."
- Drenched Co.


Comment: "For me, Barry explores the ideas behind true orality - when sequences of words and symbols are coloured by the presence of bodies and powered by breath and pulse. Her installation uses the oral event and the nonlinearity of oral thought processes to forefront relationships, movement and presence through her lived experiences as a sheep farmer and artist. Fabulous!" -

Exhibition Review - Yinka Shonibare MBE: '...and the wall fell away' Stephen Friedman Gallery, London till 11th Nov 2016.

Image of Stephen Friedman Gallery, London with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.

“the mockery was born
 from misplaced embroidery
 stitches
 of traded thread"
- Drenched Co.


Comment: "In this exhibition, Shonibare's art is once again about 'purloined seduction or pretend authenticity'. To me, Shonibare's magic lies in his contextual use of wax batik textiles. The voluptuousness of his fabric and its garish patterns always seduced and was slow to the gaze. Each fold and weave of the material often played with you before abandoning you to confused signifiers. To me, meanings are woven into the fabric itself and do not simply translate into flat, vernacular patterns of African ethnicity. But sadly, the fold, pleat and stitch is no longer." - Jayzee

Exhibition Review - Marc Behrens: '«Phantoms»' The MART Gallery, Dublin till 22nd Oct 2016.

Image of The MART Gallery, Dublin with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.

To listen is to edit,
the raphsody of the wind,
to hear is to see,
its conditions of possibility."
- Drenched Co.


Comment: "To me, Behrens is our guide to the auditory unconscious, to sound that we won't hear or can't hear, to the confused swarm of elemental noise. Behrens, through his expertise in montage and editing, introduces us to the contaminated pause, to the backdrop that reveals sound.  In near silence, he sensitises us to ghosts, to notions of intent and to the sounds of our imagination. The exhibition is esoteric and sparse. It requires commitment to discern the artist in his compositions. He nudges us towards the infinite but it is lost upon us. It begs another look." - Raj

Exhibition Review - Willie Doherty: 'Loose Ends' Kerlin Gallery, Dublin till 19th Oct 2016.

Image of Kerlin Gallery, Dublin with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.


Leach out the vapors, 
thaw time in forsaken places.
Wherever we remember,
it's far from history."
- Drenched Co.


Comment: "Doherty's videos are to me a re-telling of stories and events from a hundred years ago, a new  perspective on history that is a type of witnessing that is not testimony. The videos have a certain posthumous quality to them as they explore the past in a ghost like hallucination, not concerned about making any sense of it. Also Doherty films powerful subjects with violent histories, their intense disquiet having been absorbed and filtered into every frame of his videos, giving his signature restraint a certain penumbra of unexpected danger. I have watched these videos again and again!" - Raj

Exhibition Review - Thilo Heinzmann: 'To Be And To Be' Carl Freedman Gallery, London till 22nd Oct 2016.

Image of Carl Freedman Gallery, London with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.

“Something happened beyond the frame.
Something left behind.
Something reframed."
- Drenched Co.


Comment: "Heinsmann's clever use of disjunctive, anachronistic elements made me think of a forensic enquiry into the Modernist project. His paintings are like 'petri dishes' used to culture the isolated craft and technique of modernism. Heinsmann substitutes the subjective and subtle process of discovery for the 'science'." - FaSa

Exhibition Review - David Korty at Sadie Coles HQ, London till 1st Oct 2016.

Image of Sadie Coles HQ, London with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.


Korty's unmoving mutating frenzy,
inserts imaginary mathematics
between the viewer it's already leaving behind."
- Drenched Co.


Comment: "It seems to me that Mr Korty's new paintings have been 'datamoshed' through some sort of lossy compression algorithm. Indeed, over the years Mr Korty's evolving compositions have given in to compression and flatness and looking at them now I am reminded how compression reorganises the context, time and space of information and introduces certain artifacts that materialise the inherent character of the medium. Pushing the digital analogy further, I see pixelating, checkerboarding and macroblocking  and perhaps, just perhaps,  Mr Korty's paintings are a sort of a critique of today's perfect world of digital communication, a world of instant gratification." - Raj

Exhibition Review - Cathy Haynes, Nancy Holt, Hannah Lees, Zoe Paul, Claire Potter: 'Overlay' White Rainbow, London till 20th September 2016.

Image of White Rainbow, London with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.


There, all snarled up in a mesh,
smothering and sowing,
- an invoking."
- Drenched Co.


Comment: "To me this exhibition is about matrices i.e. the environments or materials within which something develops, is cast or shaped. Here, there is everywhere evidence, of the Great Goddess, a medium between nature and humanity, guiding not the shaping of matter, but its resurrection. And these matrices, these 'situations', are especially embedded in Nancy Holt's multiplicity of images, in Cathy Haynes' forest of words and months, in Hannah Lees' tablets and altarpiece, in Zoe Paul's staging and Claire Potter's script.   Subtle and fabulous.

Exhibition Review - Rajinder Singh: 'Cage of Deliverance' Wei Ling gallery, Kuala Lumpur till 30th September 2016.

Image of Wei Ling gallery, Kuala Lumpur with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.

Rajinder blends the limit of the traumatised body  against the sweep of erasure."
- Drenched Co.


Comment: "Rajinder builds spacious cages in his paintings, free to roam about in, their quiet tranquility oblivious to the trauma transcribed onto their very walls. This terrorising calligraphy, unseen yet obvious,  forms a salient component in Rajinder's 'simulation cages', strapped onto life's limbs, lancing together an algorithmic representation of the self. And to me, cage and limb, lulled by incense and candlelight, seem to fade quietly away into their dark,  cavernous surroundings.  " - FaSa

Exhibition Review - Golnaz Fathi, Jenny Holzer, Sayaka Ishizuka, Qian Jiahua, Ezzam Rahman, Melati Suryodarmo, Tao Hui, and Zen Teh: 'In Silence' Pearl Lam gallery, Singapore till 4th September 2016.


Image of Pearl Lam gallery, Singapore with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.

Shipwrecked on silence,
seas tugging between us, 
we hurl voices into distance, 
waiting to hear our names."
- Drenched Co.


Comment: "Nyepi, Bali's "Day of Silence", catches on worldwide as 8 artists from across the globe come together to contemplate life beyond and within silence. Alone and separate, we leave our silences for the raging torrents of life, interacting with the world around us, willing a presence as we bruise and are bruised, before  we turn once again to silence, desperately heavy and human. The cryptic inflected voices of Holzer, Fathi's motions of prayer, Rahman's intensely personal pleats and folds and Ishizuka's rice melodies especially stir in me memories of that unfamiliar sensation of silence, when the roar of life cedes and you can hear yourself think again. Fabulous." - FaSa

Exhibition Review - John Clang: 'The World Surrounding an Indoor Plant' FOST gallery, Singapore till 4th September 2016.

Image of FOST gallery, Singapore with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.


Clang traces his mind around every image.
- Drenched Co.


Comment: "In Singapore, John Clang renders projected photos of his family and friends in charcoal before rephotographing them. His exhibited images, several steps removed from his subjects, are to me an investigation into the magical powers of his camera, a tool to catch the real from the illusory, the substance from mere appearance, and perhaps even the good from the evil. In the end though the photograph as index merely reflects human subjectivity and error in the self reflexive production of art from art and becomes entwined with the whole problem of time. I didn't love them. " - FaSa

Exhibition Review - Andrew Sutherland at Edel Assanti, London till 28th May 2016.

Image of Edel Assanti, London with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.

“Practical activity writes upon nature, 
.. in a scrawling hand..”
- Drenched Co.
Quote by Henri Lefebvre "The production of space". 1991

Comment: "Andrew, to me, is above all an itinerant. The thread of his wanderings, the lines on which he conducts his life and actions is steadfastly entangled with his materials,his  textures and his patterns. Through these fluxes and flows, aided by his particular sensitivity for the invisible reality around things, Andrew composes magical intricate spaces in his work.  I liked his work in 'Gold Standard' best." - FaSa

Comment: "'Dense Mesh' is a brilliantly conceived show with some extraordinary young American artists bringing into question philosophies which privilege the human being over things.  For such a project, Flusser is an apt choice. He does not speak of a yearning for a return back to a humanist past but suggests we accept our modern apparatuses and learn from and through them to a new measure of freedom. The artists in this show attempt in their own way to break into and subvert their programming to expand the agency of things and to give primacy to creative movements through processes, flows and transformations. And, by so doing, they bring back life to a world of things and free them from servitude. I loved loved Ryan Lauderdale's constructions!" - FaSa

Exhibition Review - John Divola, Cyprien Gaillard, Beatrice Gibson, Michail Pirgelis, Daniel Turner: 'Under a falling sky' Laura Bartlett Gallery, London till 5th June 2016.


Image of Laura Bartlett Gallery, London with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.


Under a falling sky,
crack history into a wreckage of words.
- Drenched Co.

Comment: "For me, this show builds on the conversations around the brilliant 'Drawn by its own memory' exhibition at the same gallery earlier this year. See our review here. How do we make objects talk to us and tell us things that might surprise us? In this exhibition, Divola leads a star-studded cast into the Benjaminian and Heideggerian project that wants you to consider the thingness of things by tearing them out of their context. When unanchored, objects pose new questions and bring about interesting new reinterpretations as they direct our attention to slippages in the text inscribed on the 'countenance' of 'nature-history'. Divola's diptychs and Pirgelis' plane parts are especially intriguing. Fabulous!" - FaSa

Exhibition Review - Jules de Balincourt: 'Stumbling Pioneers' Victoria Miro, London till 14th May 2016.

Image of Victoria Miro, London with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.


 What purchase iridescence on a parting glance?
- Drenched Co.

Comment: "In de Balincourt's paintings I hear the familiar Nietzschean cry, "God is dead". And I marvel at how this artist uses humour to deal with the space that is left deserted, empty in His absence.   de Balincourt's humour is ambivalent, casually delicate and fundamentally pessimistic and it invents 'festivals of atonement' and 'sacred games' to find new meaning in a godless America. And this without obscuring any of its ills. I love the way the artist makes me feel his stumbling presence in his paintings as he completes his 'chapters' in a flurry of mad inspired activity." - FaSa
