Elvire Bonduelle at Ronchini Gallery
until Saturday 18 March
French chic from an artist who shows early signs of the flair and humour of a young Claude Lalanne (see earlier review). Of course it may be that it's because both women are French. Bonduelle, a young Parisian trained at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris, produces work that is spirited, cheeky and poetic. Her black metal benches, austerely unupholstered, may not look all that comfortable (see below), but each pair carries a witty message - 'Cool Raoul' as shown or 'Relax Max'.

22 Dering Street
London W1 
Mon-Fri 10-6; Sat 12-5
