Just when you thought London’s art scene couldn’t get any better – you see this!

Last week, my best friend and I were visiting art galleries, because… you know… we are two little cultural freaks who like to indulge in something mind blowing and strange. First, we went to see “Women of Neon” at Fenwick (in collaboration with Lights of Soho), which was quite underwhelming. Mainly because it was only a shop window display… Come on, we need moar! *in Britney Spears voice* Gimme Moar!

After an hour-long Snapchat story rant, we shimmied our way to Tate Modern as we thought it was a safe choice for an artsy day out… and it was a damn good choice!

The South Terrace of Tate Modern has been transformed into an immersive fog installation, made by the insanely talented Japanese artist Fujiko Nakaya. It features breathtaking LED lights and soundscapes.

You might think that London does not need any more atmospheric gloom, but Nakaya has a positive aim for this. She wanted to change the bad image of London fog, smog and other misty occurrences, which were brought up after the Industrial Revolution. This time around, Nakaya creates the new generation of London fog – an ecological fog – for everyone to enjoy!

The sculpture runs until 2nd of April, therefore you still have some time left to soak in this very instagrammable fog. Also, watch some great live performances at the Tanks (downstairs).

When art goes from a static presentation to an experience of performance, film, sound, fog and dance! I definitely see myself perform one of the Gravitational Feel numbers, whilst vaping in my room.
