There is a bizarre – free – exhibition currently on at the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) on The Mall.
It’s a photography exhibition by Juergen Teller who is “considered one of the most important photographers of his generation”.
There are a lot of warnings about full-on nudity. And you are not disappointed.
At first, there are a lot of photos that you could just walk by thinking “I’ve seen better on FB”. And there are a few that stick out, (excuse the pun):
- There’s Victoria Beckham legs akimbo in a Marc Jacobs shopping bag… I have NO idea how she was talked into that
- Lily Cole appears naked (again)…
- And most disturbing and yet most interesting, three MASSIVE portraits of quirky Dame Vivienne Westwood leaving nothing to the imagination. NOTHING. She is older than my mum
I felt really naughty trying to get a quick snap on my iphone and ended up giggling more about the fact an innocent bystander protected Viv’s modesty – google Vivienne Westwood Naked and you will get the full glory!
And there is an equally enormous image of a kitten. For not obvious reason.
An exhbition that asks more questions than it answers.
Worth a visit if you have a spare half hour… and you are not of a delicate nature
However, if you can’t get there before 17th March – you can pretty much see everything on the Guardian website.
