Gillian Wearing at the Whitechapel Gallery

Postby jasperjoffe » Sun May 06, 2012 9:19 pm

I found this show wearing (ha ha). It is quite moving, the ones where she put the kids words in the adults mouths. She is the English Cindy sherman, but not as good. Her photos really don't seem original. We're all weaing masks. She exposes some thing with the technique of showing what people are thinking, what's inside of them. And it's a good area to explore, but felt like it didn't quite push into great art.
