Tayou, born in the Cameroon and based in Belgium, brings a highly individual and colourful take on matters such as global consumption and identity whether national or individual. He expresses this through highly individual sculptural forms, often created on site, made from a combination of traditional crafts and found objects. The latter can include consumer waste, glass, ceramics, wood, cloth and organic waste. While this may be his first solo show in London I doubt that it will be his last.
Pascale Marthine Tayou:Boomerang, Serpentine Sackler Gallery, West Carriage Drive, London W2, until 17th May
