"Zabludowicz Collection Invites" provides an opportunity for artists not yet represented by a UK commercial gallery to have a solo presentation in London, amongst many participated artists were as well Richard Sides and Rachel Maclean for example. The upcoming show will consist of a series of photographs made by RCA graduate Andrew Munks. He came to an original idea of catching fishes, dressing them in hats and wigs and making photos of them under the water for Plop Shop. The sound and information components will play through the three retro telephones.

The exhibition will be on show until 9 April at the Zabludowicz Collection, 176 Prince of Wales Road, NW5 3PT

Electricity: The spark of life' at the Wellcome Collection promises to be fascinating and thought-provoking. Featuring more than 100 objects, exhibition is divided into three sections – Generation, Supply, and Consumption – each of which contains a new commission by a contemporary artist – John Gerrard, Camille Henrot(who received the Silver Lion Award at the Venice Biennale in 2013 for Grosse Fatigue) and Bill Morrison. Inspired by famous experiments into bioelectricity, they created artworks for the exhibition which emphasise the importance of electricity and analyse the relationship between technology, environment and humans. It is a touring exhibition organised together with the Museum of Science and industry (Manchester) and the Teylers Museum (Haarlem).

The exhibition will be shown until 25 June at Wellcome Collection, 183 Euston Road, London NW1 2BE

This modern version of Anthony Burgess original masterpiece “A Clockwork Orange” is full of energy, sexuality and movement. The stylish horror show tells us about two young men fighting against the boredom of juvenility and its’ theme remains as important today as it was in 1962 when the book was first published. 

Performances run from Tuesday to Saturday every evening at 7.30 pm from 14 February until 18 March. Show running time is 90 minutes, without an interval.
