‘Heman Chong: Foreign Affairs’ at Amanda Wilkinson Gallery, London

Pretty pictures these are not, but for a show that makes you think hard about how found objects can be fashioned into artworks, and the omnipresence of surveillance in today’s world, this exhibition is well worth a visit.

‘Anthony Iacono: Night Bonding’ at The Approach, London

Iacono’s bright colours steal the show: camp lilac, piss yellow and playful green inject a sense of lightness and humour into these odd and slightly comical works.

Patrick Goddard: Real Estates at Seventeen, London

Deliberately stylistically inconsistent and conceptually unflinching, Patrick Goddard’s works match our incongruent lives and reflect urban culture today.
