El Anatsui: New Work

Last visited the October Gallery exactly a year ago, to see - a show by El Anatsui! How quickly a year has flown! This is a show of new works however, and contains more of his signature 'cloths' constructed from thousands of discarded bottle-tops. They are like chain-mail or armour, just wonderfully sculptural, and reflect the light beautifully. I love the way their construction makes them warp and buckle when hung on the wall. A great show.
