babylon

“The law, in its majestic equality, forbids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal bread.”

Anatole France, The Red Lilly.

 

went to the keifer exhibition at the white cube for the second time.

when it works it works: a topography of rotting civilisations – empires and cities perhaps, bringing the plastic, the awe inspiring (plastic) to decay.

and here i find that the scale is effective. the white cube is played to its strengths. the degradation and the sterility do not cancel each other out. (with the exception of the sculpted pieces perhaps, they become a touch ridiculous).
