This was opened as a temporary art space during the Hackney Wick(Ed) festival. It is big and corporate. It is strange how cheap floor tiles can make ruin an art space in the same way that a nice concrete floor can make it.

I feel a bit bad criticising the space as it is not a normal art gallery and the staff from Forman's (a fish factory) who were working there were so nice and proud....more
