About my past short trip to Brexitannia
2019-04-10 16:06:18 My round trip was three days long:
Day one: fly in, take the small tour through three galleries in the Dover and Grafton Street
- David Zwirner Gallery with Franz West and Tamuna Sirbiladze
- Gallery Thaddaeus Ropac with Sylvie Fleury and Gerwald Rockenschaub (still on till May 11th)
- Gallery Max Hetzler Günther Förg and Rose English at Richard Saltoun
Starting with gallery visits at 10am every single point on the list took round about an hour plus.
The idea of this tour was look after Franz West - and anything I do associate with his work. Which is feminism works, abstract and konkret geometric art and espacially the work of Günther Förg.

For finishing up the long morning I went to the Mayor Gallery, who were showing "Julian Sta?czak: Don't talk, just look" till 31 May 2019, a scholar of Josef Albers,
and Hauser and Wirth for the Geta Bartescu Exhibition. From there I hit the road to the Peer (https://www.peeruk.org). Whenever they are open you should risk a look. My late lunch I took at a good Vietnamese restaurant near by the Hoxton Flowers Gallery.

For the late evening I passed by at the Tate Modern, ideally prepared for the first sighting of the Franz West exhibition. That left me with rather constructive sketches, konkrete ideas about colours and somewhat surreal feelings.

Day two:
started nearby the Dover Street at the Royal Academy of Arts in Burlington Gardens at 10am again. I visited Phyllida Barlow's 3 rooms exhibition. My frist thought was, this exhibition is small; the artworks are awesome; I want more.
Every one of the 3 rooms took me about an hour plus. My morning was done, so was I. I took a lunch break and went to the Lisson Gallery for the show of Channa Horwitz. I like to compare her works with those of Julian Stańczak or Hanne Darboven. Curiously this gave me with a very surreal influence.

For now I took a very long rest of the day at the Tate Modern with Franz West again, Pierre Bonnard, Dorothea Tanning - a very fast run from the end !scuptures! to the exit aka entrance and of couse Franz West for the last hours till 10pm. The interest in colour is the link between P. Bonnard and F. West. The interest in the human being / body the link between F.W. and D. Tanning.

Day three:
Packing my lagguage, mainly the catalogues, I entered the Kensington Garden for the Serpentine Gallery Teahouse Exibition of Emma Kunz. Long time seen as a Swizz herbage-witch, she was a woman artist of strong spirits. Her geometric drawings are extraordinaire. I stayed in the Serpentine till I went of for a last lunch and fetching my bag for the flight.
