At the Chisenhale: A Multimedia Raspberry Ripple of an Exhibition Ends Sunday 02 February

The UK premiere of Raspberry Poser (as in ‘poseur’ so lacks pomposity) is the third part of a trilogy by New-York artist Jordan Wolfson and his most recent video piece.

Incongruous backdrops include children’s bedrooms and Japanese erotica so not suitable for children.

The program promises ‘love, desire and the human condition’ with animation, collage, found and filmed footage, as well as sound.

Jordan Wolfson, Raspberry Poser, 2012, digital video, computer-generated imagery, 
hand-drawn animation, sound, 13′ 55”. Installation view, Chisenhale Gallery.

One Molecule, Many Forms

The changing of water from a liquid at ambient temperature down the temperature scale to crystal or solid ice (and of course up the temperature scale to hot gas) and all the stages in between is such a deep matter that I sometimes wonder if we will ever truly understand it. So if you want to examine these profound changes in a single molecular structure, head off to Ambika P3 at the University of Westminster campus at 35 Marylebone Road. Out of Ice, an exhibition by Elizabeth Ogilvie, fuses art, architecture and science.

Out of Ice runs until Sunday 9 February and there are free events, talks and workshops.

Sadie Coles HQ

A Saturday trip to Mayfair might surprise you. It's so quiet. Vehicles are parked, garaged, or transporting their owners to and from their places in the country so the streets are clear. The elegant Georgian architecture shines as do the opulent shop fronts.

South of Grosvenor Square you'll find Mount Street (with the beautiful St George's Gardens behind it) and, in South Audley Street, the old-world European charm of Richoux patisserie. A few steps away, at No. 69, the Sadie Coles Gallery is showing an exhibition of the works of Californian artist David Korty. It ends today: don't miss the chance.
