Saatchi & Saatchi #4
The other day I went to the Saatchi & Saatchi Gallery in Chelsea, London, where they have Post Pop: East Meets West.
This is how the exhibition is described:
East Meets West examines why of all the twentieth century’s art movements, Pop art has had such a powerful influence over artists from world regions that have had very different and sometimes opposing ideologies.
Widely regarded as one of the most significant art movements of the last century, Pop Art exploited identifiable imagery from mass media and everyday life to reflect on the nature of the world we live in. This exhibition examines the relationship between western Pop Art and its lesser-known eastern counterparts including “Sots Art” in the Soviet Union and “Political-Pop” or “Cynical Realism”, which has flourished in Greater China since the turn of the twenty-first century.
I certainly love art in all it’s forms and as such have decided to share my experience with you. Online give us the opportunity to share the places we go to and the things we see, I for one would love to see some of the Exhibitions you might go to. I will post over the next few days the photos I took at the Exhibition, a series of Posts, called Saatchi & Saatchi # (whatever it is).
If you want to backtrack and look over past posts you will find it under my Arty Farty link here – Arty Farty
With this image, it was electronic in some way, it was pretty much what caught your attention as you first walked in to the room which had other exhibits. The black clad ‘humans’ basically were rocking in the prayer position, back and forth and you could hear the grinding noise from the machinery working.
It was in my mind really rather spooky and sent a chill down my spine!
What do you think of these bubble pictures?
