Ron Arad’s Curtain Call


Is there a more intriguing space in London than the Roundhouse? Its size, its ornate ironworks, it unusual shape, it all adds up to one of the most special places to catch a show in London. And every now and then a performance comes  long that makes the most of the opportunity that the space offers. Such is Ron Arad’s Curtain Call. The celebrated artist has erected a vast circular auditorium, made up of thin strips of screen that can be projected upon, and then handed the place over to a collection of the 20th century’s most innovative artists. The effect is spectacular; a huge circular screen that you can watch from inside or out (or ever walk through during a performance), showing everything from Mat Collinshaw’s giant fecund forest, getting caught in tropical storms and growing and decaying all around you, to Christian Marclay’s gargantuan piano keyboard from which little shards of atonal tunes are played by disembodied fingers the size of human beings. Immersive, innovative and very beautiful, this a welcome break from gallery-based art.
