Hans-Peter Feldmann.

...is the dude whose exhibition I went to see today at the Serpentine Gallery. To be honest, it was quite mental. But to be even more honest, that's why I really liked it. Feldmann makes things in series, or photographs things as a series, so the whole space was like some sort of well-organised plinth-based kitschy junk shop belonging to a criminally insane person. The pleasure of the whole experience was how aware it made me of how much I love looking. Apparently, so does Feldmann. That's why I like the Serpentine, though. They never drown their exhibitions in dry, pedagogical interpretative material. Instead they curate mostly brilliant shows where the art does the talking. Thumbs remaining resolutely up.
