Brian Griffiths @ Vilma Gold

I’ve not seen Brian’s Work before in the flesh, but Vilma Gold had produced a lush broadsheet style paper with all his work in for free which was a nice touch. His giant Battenberg cake proposal for the fourth plinth was genius, and i recognised the london underground thing, all fun work.

Unfortunately i couldn’t say the same for the work in the gallery.  Just 6 plinth like canvas tents were arranged, and a a couple of cast dustbin lids on the floor in the office. Hoping there might be surprises inside tents i was disappointed to just find some poles holding the whole thing up.

Its all about the invisible apparently, but there was distinct lack of the theatre that makes his art great, in the cramped space.
