As I mentioned earlier, Dan Campion's exhbition opened at Aaron Laurence Gallery last night, along with Jenine Kerr's installation Pandemonium. Note the candyfloss machine and dedicated operator, all part of Dan's (partly) ironic "Eye Candy" theme:

Candyfloss at the launch of Dan Campion's exhibition at Aaron Laurence GalleryAs well as his paintings and mixed media works, there was a DVD loop of some of his video pieces. I'd almost forgotten how disturbingly beautiful and beautifully disturbing Binary Love was: insect sex and machine eroticism from a surprisingly simple source. Rumour has it that Dan has a short film on the way: a film noir love story about sausages.

Jenine's installation made great use of the boiler-room-like back room at the gallery, and unless you know the space it's hard to tell which of the pipes, fans and cobwebs were her interventions and which were part of the room. If I were an art critic I'd probably write something about oneiric voyeurism and the collective subconscious, but I'm not, so I'll just encourage you to get down there and have a look.

Rumour has it that the lead actor is pretty good too.

Nah, I've heard he's rubbish: he butchers the entire thing.

I've heard he's really susceptible to flattery :-)
