All is not what it seems

28 Aug

Francis Alÿs, Deception, Tate Modern, 15 June  –  5 September 2010 (paid)

A bell tolling, art you can step on, and films occupy the rooms, and the scrapbook layout draws you through the spaces. This is conceptual art at its best. I like it when facts surprise me, such as did you know that when Israel was divided up using a crayon, the line drawn on the map actually spanned 60-80 metres, Francis Alÿs asks, ‘who owns this land?’, with The Green Line.
