See "Psycho Buildings" before it closes …

psycho buildings imageHey, Londoners.

It’s Mack, the captain wrangler for Metblogs.

I’m on loan here from Los Angeles for a few weeks (all right, I’m on holiday with my wife and kids, and rudely crashing your party) but I had to share: On our first weekend in town, we stumbled into the sort of exhibit that smacks you smartly across the chops and reminds you that Modern Art Needn’t Suck:

If you haven’t already seen it, check out the Psycho Buildings exhibition at the Hayward at Southbank Centre …
Ten artists were give the run of a gallery room/space each to commit architecture. Most impressive is Do Ho Suh‘s Korean-American culture-clash expressed as a head-on collision between enormous house models. But my personal favorite is Mike Nelson’s “To the Memory of H.P. Lovecraft” – which looks like he managed to invoke Cthulu, who then spent an afternoon chewing enormous ragged holes in the scenery.

Excellent stuff – check it out before it closes August 25.
