HAPPENINGText: Sayaka Hirakawa

At white cube most interesting Installation was Chapman Brothers live portrait painting session. In the small room, the two keep drawing portraits and audience just watching them from very small entrance at the both side of the room.

Chapman Brothers

It looked like audience-joined type of Installation or just a joke. When they finished each portrait, they took pictures with the models. Sharleen lead singer of Texas was very happy to be painted by both of them.

Jason bodge, Rubies inside of a owl

Yvon Lambert from Paris exhibited Ruby stuffed Owl by Jason Bodge. All you can see is stuffed Owl, never know what’s in it actually. This work got huge attention from kids there. That’s probably this artist never even imagine. American photographer Nan Goldin’s works were surrounding the owl. These sexy and decadent images were suited to the place well.

Richard Deacon

Also in the park, there were some sculpture works by Sara Lucus, Peter Coffin, Richard Deacon and more. If you don’t wanna pay 17 pound for art sake, just pop in to this sculpture park will be fine enough!
