Ed Atkins at the Serpentine Gallery

Back to Hong Kong from my 1 week trip to London for museum/gallery visits.  I really enjoyed the solo exhibition of Ed Atkins at the Serpentine gallery.  The dark and intimate setting was very suitable for the overall gothic surrealistic feel of Atkins’ HD videos.  Overall a hauntingly surreal, melancholic, and dramatic effect.  Found out he’s actually a fan of Jan Svankmajer, whose Jabberwocky short film I love to death.  No wonder I find Atkins’ work amazing.
