My friend Jessica Joslin has been working tirelessly on an all new menagerie of handsome chaps made of bone and brass that’s due to go on show at the Lisa Sette Gallery this coming week.

It’s difficult to pick favourites amongst all these charismatic filigree beasties proudly dressed in velvet and glove leather, but I must admit that I’ve grown rather fond of black casqued hornbill Almeria and conjoined kitties Clio & Loci (see images below).

Ana Mendieta at Alison Jacques, London: Closing, closing, closed!

On Giving Life by Ana Mendieta, 1975, colour photograph, 20.3 x 25.4 cm

So there’s the MoMA going all “Uuuuh! Look at us! We have an exhibition webcam with Marina Abramović doing craaaaazy things on the shiny polished floor.” and then there’s those small, quiet galleries hidden away somewhere behind the BT Tower and almost impossible to find that don’t need webcams but just a very poetic exhibition concept.

Alison Jacques Gallery is showing Ana Mendieta’s Silueta and Silence for the very last day today. Go down there and see Ana dancing with skeletons, chickens, candles, fire and water or just grab a few free exhibition posters to Mendietafy your toilet!
