One of the great things about living in London is being surrounded by great art and galleries that dare to put on exhibitions with a twisted sense of humour.

Spring Projects is a gallery in an amazing industrial complex just behind the railway tracks in Kentish Town.

It opened only a year ago, but the current Barnaby Barford (previously featured here and here) exhibition shows that Spring has great a very refined bad taste and hopefully a long and healthy future as a gallery.

Oh, and their staff is simply irresistible and their no-bullshit approach to contemporary art could teach many galleries a lesson.

A must-visit!
