WALHALLA

Walhalla by Anselm Kiefer at White Cube, Bermondsey

"White Cube presented an exhibition by Anselm Kiefer featuring large-scale installation, sculpture and painting. Titled ‘Walhalla’, the exhibition referred to the mythical place in Norse mythology, a paradise for those slain in battle, as well as to the Walhalla neo-classical monument, built by Ludwig I King of Bavaria in 1842 to honour heroic figures in German history."

This was one of my most favourite exhbitions in London this year. It was completley immersive and really well brought together by White Cube. It was my first time in the gallery and it felt like entering another albeit bleak world. The claustrophobic entrance tunnel felt like the last resting place of an injured soldier. Throught the space were discarded clothing and remnants of those who have died and passed over to Walhalla.
