Frameless, London’s latest immersive art experience

Earlier today, I visited the Frameless immersive art experience, a brand-new show, which just opened near Marble Arch.

Sculpture In The City 2022 – Free, Good Fun, and Easy to Do

I checked out the Sculpture In The City 2022 sculpture trail earlier today and was pleasantly surprised. The 19 works of art have been placed in public spaces since 22 June 2022. They will continue to be displayed until 1 April next year. Very conveniently, they can all be found within a condensed part of the City of London, roughly in a triangle between the following three tube stations: Bishopsgate, Aldgate, and Monument. Bank, Tower Hill, Farringdon, Moorgate, and several other stations are also very close. To walk past all of the Sculpture In The City 2022 works takes between 45 minutes and two hours. I chose to take the train to Monument, so this is where my walk started. Should you arrive at a different station, you might hopefully still find this blog post useful. Just dive in wherever your drop-off point is closest to and continue to go […]

A.A. Murakami at Superblue – Beguiling Bouncing Bubbles

Ellie & I recently visited A A Murakami’s Silent Fall at Burlington Gardens at the rear end of the Royal Academy building complex. Timed with the beginning of Frieze Week 2021 the installation will be running until summer 2022. FLOATING BUBBLES You enter a giant, relatively dark room where bubbles are being released from tube-like dispensers above you. Because of the mirrors spread all over the walls, the space seems like an infinite forest. The bubbles look relatively heavy like honey or jelly. However, they turn out to weigh next to nothing. This is why they float towards the ground very slowly. CATCH THEM WITH YOUR HAND You can catch them with your hand. The gallery provides you with a glove for that purpose, as you are not supposed to touch the bubbles with your bare hands. You can make the bubbles bounce up and down on your glove-covered palm […]

Wayne McGregor & Random International’s No One Is An Island Dance Performance

We checked out choreographer Wayne McGregor’s & art group Random International’s collaboration No One Is An Island today. The dance performance simply blew us away. Superblue and BMW are presenting this brilliant show. MEET FIFTEEN POINTS/II The 12-minute show explores the interaction between humans and machines. It involves two dancers and one robotic machine or kinetic sculpture called Fifteen Points/II on a track of about 20-metre long rails with 15 stick-like arms that each have very strong lights at the end. It can move forward and backward on the rails and move its arms with the lights up and down, forward and backward.   INPUT FROM HARVARD The ideas for the machine were developed by Random International during various artist residences, including one at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.   A MACHINE WITH SOME HUMAN FEATURES Many of the moves of the machine feel almost human-like. This […]

Last weekend we checked out the Anish Kapoor exhibition at Lisson Gallery, which is free and runs until 30 October. As required, we booked a timed entry slot well ahead of the day. PAINTER WHO IS A SCULPTOR The artist is mainly known for his sculptures, even though paint and paintings have been part of his work since the beginning. Kapoor once described himself as a painter who is a sculptor. LATEST WORKS All the works on display have been created over the past two years, mostly at the artist’s London studio.   MODERN ART OXFORD Parallel to this exhibition, there is a second exhibition of Kapoor’s paintings at Modern Art Oxford until February next year, which we are planning to see soon.   FLESH AND BLOOD Kapoor is diving into the “inner world of our mind and body,” the brochure tells us, “from the physical exploration of the flesh […]
