Burning News: recent art from Russia – Hayward Gallery

Burning News: recent art from Russia is an exhibition in the Hayward Gallery‘s Project Space. It actually closed on Sunday, but I managed to pay it a visit before then.

The exhibition consisted of sculpture and photography by Aslan Gaisumov and Tim Parchikov, as well as videos by Evgeny Granilshchikov, Mikhail Maksimov, Sasha Pirogova and Dimitri Venkov. There was an interesting variety of work on show, and I’m not sure it was really my thing (except for the burning of the newspapers), but it was a thought-provoking way to pass some time.
