More London tips: Helen Chadwick retrospective

If you come by London anytime soon I can recommend the Helen Chadwick retrospective - both the main event and the Blood-hyphen appendix at the Woodbridge Chapel. Chadwick's pieces are modern art - but not quite of the Young British Art vogue. She has a more oldfashioned approach, specifically her art feels difficult in another way than the young british art. You just have this idea that it was more of a struggle being modern a few years earlier than in the glorious booming 90s.
But the works are great - and occasionally surprisingly so. Who would have thought that a 2m diameter circular pool of bubbling hot, melted chocolate would be so captivating.
