A Day at the Exhibition

Ten Feet Away, visited the Serpentine Gallery last Tuesday (11/o8/15), where Lynette Yiadom-Boake exhibited her “Verses after Dark”, a series of figure canvases. Africans of various ages are portrayed in various static and animated poses, evoke moods of seriousness and levity.Fatima says it was beautiful and particularly liked the portrayal of a dancer ” Flat and amateurish” was another description in Bill’s opinion. George felt indifferent to this display.

The Collective also visited the Slacker Gallery, where an exhibition by Duane Hanson presented us with surprisingly realistic manikins in work based poses with the tools of their forgotten, unseen and undervalued occupations. So realistic were these figures, that some of us were embarrassed to talk to them. “Impressive”, remarked George.
