In the darkest hour there may be light

These are images from the latest exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery put together by Damien Hirst. The Private View was packed w the cream of the British art world and jetset. The show has some really gory works and in the whole is quite grim in tone, but since its from the murderme collection, I guess its quite appropriate...British humour.

Future Sound of London is back! HURRAY!

Yesterday evening I went to a lecture at the new Kinetica Museum by Future Sound of London entitled 'The Synthesis of New Life Forms in Surround Sound'. Kinetic means related or produced by motion. The Kinetica Museum is the 1st such museum in the UK and is dedicated not just to electronic kinetic but also experimental art. It's inside the Old Spitalfields Market.
I started listening to FSOL at uni and was hooked straight away! I have all their music (err, almost) and this is the type of thing that feeds my brain (amongst other stuff). I was pleasantly surprised by the lecture: there he was, a guy I respect for his work, extremely sucessfull, in front of me talking like a human being and not like a super star on an ego trip. Make no mistakes though! This is a man w a BIG EGO, but in a positive way though. I have to mention that FSOL is made up of Gaz & Brian and Gaz was the one giving the talk yesterday. I could just carry on and on but I shall not! Here is a snippit of the lecture

Lucky we were (& you too!) we were given a preview of what's to come, so here

You can check FSOL music here.

This type of event is what makes London such an exciting place to be and regardless of all its pitfalls, by no means is perfect, LONDON ROCKS!!

Freud Museum - Sue Webster & Tim Noble

Last night was the opening of 'Polymorphous Perverse' by Tim Noble and Sue Webster at the Freud Museum. I'd seen their work before. I don't usually go for gory things but their big installation, of which you can see a brief video below, is actually quite fascinating. I think because it is in the context of Freud I didn't dismiss it as I usually would w things this dark. I must say they managed to create a piece that somehow manages to translate Freud's concept of polymorphous perverse in a way (well, its all down to interpretation...).
