Somewhere you can eat, somewhere you can have a coffee, somewhere for the kids to play, somewhere for inst-twat pictures.
Each year an artistic type is invited to design something for the Serpentine Pavilion and for 2013 it is the brilliant light filled structure by Sou Fujimoto. Simple white frame, glass and light creates something quite epic that you spot from such a distance.
SF made a little journey to the Serpentine this weekend to check out Sturtevant, a lady from the US who resides in Paris. a lady who in her early artist adventures was maligned and misunderstood by the establishment who felt she was simply copying the work of others. Times changed and the idea that she was actually more visionary and actually re-interpreting the artists who influenced her, such as Duchamp and artists who were relatively unknown such as Warhol and Lichtenstein, both who went on to be fairly well known. I recommend Leaps Jumps and Bumps.
Her use of iconic imagery, sex, light, music and repetition bring an uncomfortable beauty, maybe not suitable for all the family but free and worth the visit. Anyways the hours are wearing on here and sometimes it is nice for a little self discovery isn’t it? Do a lil research then……. otherwise feast on these funnies
