lovelondonscenes 165 – White Cube Gallery, Bermondsey

A week ago I went down to the White Cube Gallery in Bermondsey to see a few exhibitions that were about to finish. The principal one was “Remains to be Seen” by Mona Hatoum, a Lebanese/Palestinian artist. The theme of the show was upheaval, disorder, dislocation, oppression. The exhibits were stark – mostly black against the white expanse of the White Cube. Some were monumental and it’s two of those that I concentrate on below.

This exhibition is over now, but I recommend the White Cube as a place to visit. It’s a beautifully designed space, and the the exhibitions are always interesting. It’s a ten minute walk from London Bridge station.

Outside, as I left, the first signs of darkness were appearing. Over the top of the buildings, the ubiquitous Shard began to gleam.
