7 artists (6 if you count Sarah & Louise Wilson together) curated areas in the Hayward Gallery. Interesting to see the effect of different curation and presentation within one experience. I liked the room by Richard Wentworth. I liked the collection of work - including Hepworth, Tony Cragg and Moore. But in particular I liked the presentation of the collection of books - face down on high glass shelves (as seen in shadow above the doors in the image below)
"Roger Hiorns’s room unpacks a very different archive; his obsessive-compulsive collating of documents relating to mad cow disease " (Guardian) - I didn't like this as a presentation. In a way he is making an interesting point "There is a curious “analogue” quality to the spread of this archetypal scare story – all carbon-paper memos and typewritten folders. Virus stories had not yet become fully viral." (Guardian). But it makes for a very dull room.
