Goldin+Senneby’s WVAP reviewed in Frieze

Goldin+Senneby’s first solo-exhibition in the UK and Ireland VWAP is reviewed by João Laia in the September issue of Frieze magazine. Laia writes: “/…/ Goldin+Sennby’s complex web of references produces an insightful comment on how external dynamics are incorporated into local specificities. In what was arguably their most political exhibition to date, ‘WVAP’ successfully related far-flung topics such as alchemy, theater, performativity, finance, and precarious labour, mimicking but also unpacking the functioning of the contemporary neo-liberal markets and their interaction with local realities, here specifically focusing on a context marked by a prolonged period of conflict. In doing so, they they formulate a sharp comment on both Derry~ Londonderry’s situation and the broader political landscape, making their first UK solo show a remarkable introduction to their work.” (Frieze, no 157, p.158-159)
