Friday Dispatch: Roman Signer, Slow Movement, at The Curve, Barbican, London

Roman Signer is not an artist over-familiar to UK audiences: he had shows at Camden Arts Centre in 2001 and Edinburgh’s lovely Fruitmarket Gallery in 2007, but shows far more regularly…

Andrea Büttner and Brit Meyer at Piper Keys, London

The beaten up 1950s warehouse does nothing to prepare you for the elegance of the installation of work by Andrea Büttner and Brit Meyer. The work and the hang are both spare and lean. Büttner invited her ex-student Meyer to show with her and the pairing of the well known artist and the just-graduated is unselfconsciously and delicately played out.

LA MER INSOMNIAQUE, Natalie Häusler, Eric Sidner, Margo Wolowiec, at Laura Bartlett Gallery, London

Spring’s suddenly on hold and it’s going to rain all weekend. So the only thing to do is get out there and look at some interesting shows. The Approach has obligingly extended its wonderful Bill Lynch exhibition to 1 March so you can catch that, have a pub lunch downstairs with a glass of something to warm the cockles, then head over to Herald Street to see Laura Bartlett’s current show.
