south of the river

i would say with out doubt the most amazing, unexpected and beautiful exhibition of last year was seizure. not so much exhibition but natural intervention, taking place in a condemned block of flats near elephant and castle. an infestation of copper sulphate crystal orchestrated by artist roger hiorns. the resulting patterns of crystal covered every surface leaving the rooms with an intense yves klein-esque blue glow. if you didn't manage to make it get hiorns book detailing all the planning and prep that went into the work and including some stunning photos.
