Matthew Sawyer was listed as Guardian’s Artist of the week so I popped in to the Rokeby Gallery to check out ‘White Donkey for Sale’. This ongoing series titled ‘Documentary Works’ includes text, painting, drawing and some rather weird sculpture.
The highlight of the exhibition for me were the quirky bits of text which contextualised his photographs. I laughed out loud at the ping pong ball which he posted anonymously through a strangers letterbox. He had written five words on the ball which summed up his 33rd year - one of those words was Ukulele.
