a stroll through E London Galleries - Ginte Regina at Gao had a sweet film, next door Carlos had no history in a room filled with people with funny names 5, a bean-bag-immersive three screen installation by Korakrit Arunanondchai - some great images creating multiple narratives - Korakrit keeps cropping up on my radar - last seen at Berlin Biennale and Palais de Tokyo. The approach, with 2 shows - the oppressive/obsessive Manga/Bruegel hybrid drawings by Hun Kyu Kim and the paper collage by Peter Davies - really interesting work but maybe too many in the room to be able to see them. Chisenhale had a sound piece and installation of objects by Lawrence Abu Hamden. A fascinating show that introduced the idea of oppression and violence in a prison measured by the released men's relationship to silence - powerful stuff.
meanwhile Year 3 Textile Design students at nua have an exhibition called - Can you give me some attention please? at St Margarets Church of Art on St Benedicts Street in Norwich. It's Free entry November 27 - December 1 10am - 5pm there will be some excellent work to view - if you are in the area come along.
