There’s a cool little exhibition going on in London at the moment. In an abandoned apartment in the south of the city, Roger Hiorns has turned the idea of sculpture inside out, covering the walls of a room with copper sulphate solution which, after a few weeks, transformed into bright blue copper sulphate crystals. Whether there’s any political message in covering a room in crystals in Elephant and Castle, certainly one of London’s less affluent neighbourhoods, has been left open to debate.
