Dropping all the plates.

The works of Dieter Roth currently on show at Camden Arts Centre until mid July are a collection of personal diaries, installations, videos, drawings and assemblages. His works are full of energy and repetition and are described as showing the ‘indivisibility between Art and Life.’ There was indeed a lot of trivia and detritus,the scraps and parings of existence and the clutter of living on show.


Although I found the exhibition difficult to warm to knowing very little about his life and not having come across his work before it did resonate with me this week as unlike Dieter who made his life a work of art ( maybe this is a man’s world) I failed to keep all the plates spinning and simply lost my way.
