London is becoming busier than ever as Frieze is approaching and nights are filled up with galleries openings. I attended the opening of Adel Abdessemed exhibition at Parasol Unit last night a "must see" exhibition. The place was full of artists, collectors, Francois Pinault was there supporting this young French Algerian artist who has a room for his amazing "Pluie Noire" installation at Palazzo Grassi. I enjoyed it a lot when I was in Venice this summer.
"Silent Warriors is organised around two of Abdessemed’s major works. In the ground floor gallery, Habibi, 2003, a 17-metre human skeleton made of fibreglass will hang horizontally from its spine together with an aeroplane propeller. Occupying the first floor will be a new installation entitled silent warrior, which includes numerous colourful masks made from found and discarded empty tin cans from Africa, which once either contained food provisions or toxic material."
