If you are in any way between 29th January and 15th March in London, you should pay a visit to the CHELSEA space for the Exhibition named Almost Bliss: Notes on Derek Jarman’s Blue curated by Donald Smith. If you are interested in a private view, there is a chance on 28th January between 6 and 8.30pm.
Almost Bliss is a contemplation on the filmmaker, artist, writer and activist Derek Jarman. This installation focuses on a set of Jarman’s hand painted and carefully written notebooks and giving insight into the artist’s creative thinking towards his late film work, Blue. The exhibition makes reference to two earlier installations linked to Jarman: the first one by Mark Wallinger in 1994 and the another one by Peter Fillingham with Keith Collins in 1999.
