The Shape Of Things To Come: a tangled up mess?

A beautiful and strange smell reaches your nostrils, as you walk into gallery 6 at The Saatchi Gallery. But looking around you definitely feel as though you ought not to like it. And that’s what the entire exhibition feels like.

Beauty in the absurd, the tragic and the disturbing, ‘The Shape of Things to Come’, is a tangled up mess, capturing the chaos we’re feeling as a society. Car crashes, toppling monuments and rubble tell a narrative of post-modern art.

My Highlights:

Peter Buggenhout, The Blind Leading The Blind #21 (2007)

Tragic, beautiful, perception.

David Altmejd, The New North (2007)

Metamorphosis, boundaries, spirtual.

Sterling Ruby, Headless Dick, Deth Till (2008)

Chaos, riot, bleak.
