At the Saatchi Gallery

It's always fun to go to one of the Saatchi gallery previews and last night's was up to standard but less crowded than many - as well as Dead: A Celebration of Mortality there were some old favourites.

Very nice to take in what was on offer and a glass of wine too.

Impressive display of blue bags on the ground floor that perhaps said something about pollution.
Bags 97,000 I think it said this was a work by Jean-Francois Bocle

and a chilling one of a suitcase
Rather sadly the Richard Wilson installation which is so bewitching now seems to have gone from display but there are of course other things to take its place.

A worrying image of bodies
Dead did have some stuff that was quite in your face - included some skinned animals and a selection of (not real) corpses.

The classic 'Vermin Death Stack'

by David Falconer ..And the detail's impressive

Reminded me of the  Pink Floyd -
Wish You Were Here
A few books to get through - reminded me of Duane Hanson

It's fair to say some was amusing with a  certain gallows humour

There are bodies everywhere - we'd better get out of here.
