Art in London

In London for the weekend, I visited the Tate Modern and the British Museum. Amazing. My favorites:

At the British Museum, a close-up of Cradle to Grave by Pharmacopoeia, a collaboration by textile artist Suzie Freeman, video artist David Critchley, and Dr Liz Lee. Two lenghts of fabric illustrated the lives of a woman and a man, incorporating 14000 drugs (the estimated average prescribed to every person in Britain in their lifetime) weaved into “pockets” of nylon filments.

At the Tate Modern, A Living Man Declared Dead and Other Chapters by Taryn Simon.

Also at the Tate, the installation Staircase III, recreating a staircase (complete with lightswitches and coat-hooks) by artist Do Ho Suh made out of polyester and stainless steal tubes. It hung above me like a transparent, glowing second storey, and I loved it.
