Camden Duff Arts

The Camden Art Centre continues to plumb the depths of duff art with its two latest shows, aided and abetted by Arts Council England. Serena Korda: Aping The Beast features a Godzilla-like monster (left) and a dead cat. Dorothy Iannone: Innocent and Aware comes with a warning: "Please note that some works in the exhibition are of an explicit nature". Right is a detail from The Next Great Moment In History Is Ours (1970), which gives you an idea of what to expect: doodles of Ms Iannone's memories of aping the beast in her search for love. The blurb is an unbelievable proclamation of the triumph of screwing around ... er ... I mean the "pursuit of ‘ecstatic unity' through transcendence and spirituality" (CLICK).
