Susan Hiller, Channels @ Matt’s Gallery, 42 Copperfield Rd, London E3 4RR
From the Press Release: «Channels is an artwork designed to engage us in a consideration of some of the gaps and contradictions in our modern belief system and collective cultural life. It is not intended as a religious consolation nor ‘new age’ fantasy, but rather as a de-stabilising aesthetic device opening to the un-representable».

Documenting Disappearing London
I pass these stores every day. I pass hundreds every week, maybe thousands each month. It’s rare that I look for longer than I need. But Emily Webber sees them.
Based in Hackney, Emily shoots images of the urban furniture of 21st-century London. Her photos show chicken shops and nail bars; laundromats, kebab shops, hairdressers, cab offices, newsagents, and thrift stores all feature. In an increasingly chainified city, she zeroes in on the beauty and originality of the garish and the mundane. On London Shop Fronts, she has published over 1,200 images so far, running one every morning for almost four years.

As luck would have it I started supporting Chelsea just a few weeks before Anelka moved to Shanghai Shenhua so I can’t get his jersey. I guess I’ll follow Shanghai Shenhua as I already kind of have done; also their kits are amazing.
