Refridgerator by Allen Jones.
The Square is cut from a Royal Academy leaflet, advertising Jones’ retrospective in 2014. I visited this exhibition the same day I went to a Schiele exhibition at The Courtauld. Both exhibitions could have been perceived as pornographic. Yet, the Schiele I saw as being extremely beautiful, favourite exhibition of the year, in fact. The Allen exhibition, made me feel uncomfortable. I have never liked his work, but reserved judgement as I had only ever seen reproductions, until this show.
This is the eleventh patch of my ‘London Exhibition Patchwork’. It is a patchwork made from leaflets of exhibitions I have visited in London. There are sixteen squares in total.
