There was work going on at the Serpentine Gallery (and I mean work not works).
|More roof work|
And what do we think of Wade?
|Referencing the Press|
Well he was certainly not the most accessible modern artist - all his work was 'untitled' and was distributed as hung work (mainly canvas pairs), adapted work (in cabinets) and a stack of work (which was why the title of the exhibition was 'abridged').
Much of his (hanging) work referenced the media - and often their was a disjoint in these works.
Seeing him talk on Youtube clips he presents as a fairly direct person but I am not too sure what I get from this body of work.
|Two big works and cabinets with some of his 'altered' items|
|More joined canvases and cabinets|
|A stack of his work - don't touch|
|A working space shown.|
Here is the Wikipedia on the artist - and a clip that has been released to 'highlight' the current exhibition.
If you find something that will explain more about the basis of the work please let me know- I see he commands prices around the $1m.
