The coincidence of two notable solo shows by this London-based artist prompts me to write about Anne Hardy today. If you happened to cross Waterloo bridge last autumn you will have seen part of Hardy’s contribution to the Hayward’s Mirror City exhibition: in addition to an installation inside the gallery, six photographic works were installed as enormous billboards across several of the gallery’s sculpture terraces looking out over the river or on to Waterloo Bridge.

Postcard from Basel

“Drinking from the fire hose” is the expression that springs to mind to describe the sensation of two days spent at Art Basel. It is the grandest of all the art fairs across the world, the quality, range and scale of the work is astounding; and each year the skies over Basel Mulhouse airport darken with the flocks (flights, squadrons?) of private jets bringing in starry collectors.

Simplicity is a paradoxical thing. One becomes wary, with experience, of presuming that works that ostensibly operate in a straightforward way are as innocent as they seem. The more one…
