Skewville - Slow Your Roll
Posted on March 24, 2011 in Exhibtions:
Slow Your Roll, the first UK solo show by Brooklyn art duo Skewville, launched last Friday at High Roller Society. AM took advantage of the East London gallery’s new Sunday opening hours to visit over the weekend in the calm of a non-preview atmosphere. On the way, we spotted one of Skewville’s recent outdoor pieces, featuring the painted and foam-stamped word “BEEF” aptly done on the shopfront shutter of a local butcher. Plenty of stamps were also in evidence along the Regent’s Canal towpath, at times going over the existing tags of local vandals — and perhaps bringing a whole new meaning to the term “graffiti beef.” The exhibition continues until April 24.
