Anselm Kiefer at the Royal Academy - 27 September to 14 December 2014

If you're in London why not go & see the Anselm Kiefer exhibition at the Royal Academy.  See sculptures and paintings on an epic scale.  Using lead, different types of paints, clay, ash, diamonds and plant material, Kiefer manages to produce some immense thought provoking works referencing memory and the human condition among other topics.  Some of his works have taken over a decade to complete.  

If you can't make the exhibition drop by the Annenberg Courtyard and take a look at the vitrines - Velimir Khlebnikov: Fates of Nations: The New Theory of War (see above & below)


Kiefer references Khlebnikov (Russian avant garde writer) who concluded that great sea battles took place every 317 years (or multiples of that).  Bit weird but worth a look!
