Sundays are fun-days! Instead of waking up slightly hungover and ordering a KFC family bucket for one, I spend my Sundays at art exhibitions. From Tate to Saatchi, art is where I find myself!
Last week, my plan was to see Do Ho Suh’s “Passage/s” exhibition at Victoria Miro. Sadly, my best friend and I travelled all the way to Islington to find out that Victoria Miro is closed on Sundays… I mean, WTF?!
Luckily, Parasol Unit Foundation for Contemporary Art was open next door. It currently exhibits Tschabalala Self’s expressive and dynamic works of the human figure. Loads of naked silhouettes and body parts. Veeery controversial!
Right at the back, there’s a large urban shed structure installed, upside-down and seemingly mid-explosion (pictured. The interior is bright, acid-yellow like – looks pretty cool. It reminded me of that crazy shed party I’ve been to in London Fields several summers ago… *awkward pause* But let’s save this twisted little story for another time.
This extraordinary light sculpture was created by London-based artist Nathaniel Rackowe. It’s called Black Shed Extended.
Layers game strong with an oversized denim jacket.
On my artsy days out I like to wear something extra cosy and comfortable. Hence why I chose this oversized denim jacket from ASOS and a classic black hoodie from Illusive London. It really is a match made in the black shed, especially with the salt and pepper look I’m going for. *books a haircut appointment, immediately*
VISIT: Nathaniel Rackowe: Black Shed Expanded at Parasol Unit Foundation For Contemporary Art. Open until 12th of March.
