I’m back home from a week in sunny Portugal, back to cold and wet Britain unfortunately. But I’m excited to extend summer a little by catching Jean Jullien’s beach themed exhibition!
Jean Jullien - La Plage, 12th - 29th September @ Beach London
La Plage builds upon Jullien’s recent London exhibitions Allo? at Kemistry Gallery and at Pick Me Up, Somerset House, in presenting sharp-witted visual puns that explore human interaction and social behaviours - in this case, at the Beach. The work in La Plage will draw inevitable comparison to the infamous British seaside postcards from the early twentieth century by the likes of Donald McGill; eschewing the overt suggestiveness, and replacing it with a more subtle, intelligent humour - made possible by Jullien’s outstanding understanding of composition.
These are so smart and funny, hope I can get down there to see the exhibition in person. You can follow some of his work on tumblr here - newsofthetimes.tumblr.com/ and he recently joined twitter @jean_jullien.
