On Sunday we decided to head to the Whitechapel Gallery to see the Maurizio Cattelan exhibition. Perfect excuse to have a walk down Brick Lane and peruse the street stalls and vintage markets along the way. We had lunch in the Boiler House Food Hall which has a fantastic selection of Asian cuisine. Later than expected we finally we made it to the exhibition. Cattelan’s work is very provocative and a little creepy. It features a squirrel that has committed suicide and a wax effigy of himself hanging from the neck – not to scale but incredibly lifelike. I was convinced at one point I saw his eyes move. Well worth a visit.
