Joe Sweeney, Take Away at the Cob Gallery, London: Until April 2


“Rooted in British behaviour” and “inspired by market slang”, Joe Sweeney’s Take Away is a colloquial and thought-provoking reflection by the artist on his hometown of Brixton, at the Cob Gallery until April 2 (don't hang around!). “Take Away displays the everyday happenings, disruptions and dialogues that are both familiar and strange within the ever-changing neighbourhood,” the gallery explains. “With his sculptural interpretations of pie boxes, milk cartons, and ceramic fried chicken bones, local ephemera has been transformed into something more permanent, impactful and often funny.” Gilbert and George are fans, which can only mean good things for the young artist, whose unique take on grit and Britishness make for compelling viewing.
