East End Runaround

Every now and then, when there's time, it's good to blast as many of those east end galleries as you can within a couple of hours. Today, got round to seeing John Stezaker in 'Cut' at The Approach, then up to Vyner Street and Vilma Gold, Vine (new to me), Stuart Croft's double screen piece at Fred, which was good and thought provoking, though marred by poor sound quality, the excellent photos of Tommy Angel/Jonathan Allen at David Risley, then Modern Art and then onto the Chisenhale to see the wonderful and surprisingly moving video, Flight, by Dryden Goodwin. Sat and watched it thru about four times and each time it got better and better, with hints of Patrick Keiller, David Lynch, and a TV series from when I was young called 'Changes'. Brilliant stuff. Really didn't expect to like it that much. But really did.
So, left feeling good, and decided, as I was near, to check out The Residence that opened last year and pop into Transition and say 'Hi'. Check out some images here.
