B.B.D. Console by Martin Szekely presented by Galerie kreo at Design Miami/ 2011.

After Sir Roy Strong indicated this exhibition at The National Gallery was going to be unmissable, I booked tickets. It lives up to expectations. The rare number of paintings, masterfully curated by Luke Syson with accompanying drawings provides new insight into this genius. This was my favourite portrait, ‘The Lady with the Ermine’. A drawing by Leonardo of the ermine, which is the symbol of purity was carefully showcased next to the painting.
Japanese architecture and design group Nendo have transformed New York gallery Friedman Benda into a visually stunning interior landscape yet again. Thirty-five identical scatter shelves crafted from thin black acrylic create an alluring optical illusion when viewed from the periphery and a stark geometric maze when you wander amongst them. It’s a beautiful counterpoint to Ghost Stories—Nendo’s 2009 exhibition in the gallery—in which forty cabbage chairs made of gauzy white waste material from Issey Miyake’s pleats-making process were installed amidst thousands of delicate white strings hung throughout the space.
Dazed & Confused is celebrating its 20th birthday with an exhibition at Somerset House until 29th January 2012. It is worth a look to see their continued success through controversial photography, fashion and popular culture. Each room celebrates a decade of the magazines style, through to its current era. Rankin and Jefferson brought a new attitude to the British Press, which has continuously produced inspirational content for many creative fields. Dazed & Confused can truly be described as explosive.

Situated in the heart of Shoreditch, at the Rochelle School, an exhibition titled ‘Ghosts of Gone Birds’ has emerged to raise awareness of extinct and endangered species of birds. Using artists of different genres, an eclectic mix of sculptures, paintings and prints have been produced to highlight a serious conservation issue. Ceri Levy, the curator of the exhibition, writes that the aim was to ‘…breathe life back into the birds we’ve lost…’.Each artist involved has interpreted extinction in a unique way which has created a truly fascinating exhibition.
