Levy Gorvy made the bold decision not to exhibit at Frieze Masters earlier this month, but to run a complementary exhibition, which seems to have been a rip-roaring success, given that the international art aficionados are here in London and hungry to see other things in addition to Frieze. It’s like next week when I visit the Venice Biennale – 2 days will be spent on formal exhibitions; the remainder will be spend exploring other galleries.
On the 2nd floor is an untidy bedroom – a recreation of Albert Oehlen’s one-time bedroom in Cologne, with personal links to his interest in popular music, to great coffee, and to a poster about his (then) current exhibitions. I’m not sure about the ceramic potty – was there no toilet available?
Downstairs is more adventurous with works by Albert Oehlen, Franz West and Christopher Wool all interconnecting and clashing against each other in a fascinating exhibition which explores the artistic relationship between these three experimental and innovative artists.
