Laser314 exhibition in Amsterdam

Originally uploaded by davehodg
I've been doing quite a bit of art recently, in Amsterdam, Berlin, London and LA just for giggles. Some of it has left me distinctly cold, like the Magnum retrospective at the Stedelijk and some has been outstanding and moving like the internment exhibition at the Japanese-American museum in LA.

So, to the latest: laser314's thing at the ABC Treehouse gallery near Spui.

Sadly, it's meh.

His stuff is part of the fabric of Amsterdam. When you're out you'll come across a deeply moving phrase bleeding from a hoarding that makes you stop and think. And as this example shows, he's literate too.

Sadly, out of context and hanging on a gallery wall, I'm not in the least convinced it works.


The ABC building is awesome though :) I want a desk there. And wifi.
