White Cube Bermondsey

A couple of weekends ago I visited the new White Cube space in Bermondsey. But before I get into the exciting news about that I'll fill the void since my last post. Now it has been a while since I've updated my blog(ages actually) but I can assure you I haven't totally abandoned the wonderful world of art and photography. I have been out and about the past few months taking in lots of new places and experiences. The spring/summer saw me taking in the cultural delights of Amsterdam, Brighton, Devon and Cornwall as well as many local trips to my next door neighbour London. Whilst in Amsterdam I re-visited Foam, the brilliant photography gallery I loved so much the last time I went. In Cornwall I went for the first time to the Tate in St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth gallery. And visited lots of new and old places in good old Londontown.

But a couple of weekends ago I was finally rewarded for my part in a White Cube project. A whole year ago I was back at the White Cube warehouse helping out on a project for Anselm Kiefer, having half-forgotten about hoping to see the final piece in an exhibition I was very excited to see the shiny new White Cube website and to discover they had opened a new space, with Kiefer to be one of the exhibitors. So I hop-footed it down to Bermondsey (stopping at Borough Market on the way for a few treats) and lo and behold one of the pieces that I had been working on was there in the exhibition looking splendid!(See images above) The rest of the show was great, I was in total awe of the size of the space, as I expecting something more on the scale of the Hoxton or Mason's Yard sites. So all in all a good last few months.
I will be posting soon about new work of my own and hopefully not leaving so much time in between my posts as last time.
