Strange World Exhibition
Today I went to visit a great little exhibition at the Pleasance Theatre near Caledonian Road. The exhibition brings together 4 female contemporary artists all using their practice to take aspects from the recognisable world and transform them into something strange.
I particularly liked the set of Clown paintings by artist Flora Bradwell, who's series depicts the last survivors of a fictional circus dynasty 'The Infamous Pyramid Gang' as they go about their daily lives in Haringey.
Good stuff, and it's free.
