What art have I seen? Ben Woodeson

Ben Woodeson‘ exhibition Obstacle at Berloni has all the things you’d expect – thing that make you feel the work not just see it, things that imply imminent danger. The basement gallery is bathed in a hellish light but there’s a Tom and Jerry mousetrap dimension promising exploding neon, shatter glass and escaping poisonous gas.  Woodeson’s homage to Carl Andre gives you a shock. His precarious glass pieces hint at Latham’s God is Great. What is really good about this work is the way your body is sensitised as your mind is stimulated and your curiosity (does that really balance?) is peeked.
