Olympic Metamorphasis

November 20, 2010

Anne Desmet is currently exhibiting some pictures of the Olympic construction site at the Hart Gallery in Islington.

From the Hart Gallery’s site:

The fact that the site is within a stone’s throw of her home in Hackney also helps: for an artist exploring themes of transformation and cities, what good luck to find the colossal transformation of the London 2012 Olympics right on your doorstep. Desmet speaks of ‘a sense of entitlement, a right to comment’ as a factor in her choice of the Olympic site as a subject.
