Wc_card1_copyThe eventful lead up to the Beijing Olympics has inspired vast and various comment from both familiar and seldom heard voices. Artist Sarah Morris' new body of work at London’s White Cube, Mason’s Yard makes a colour contribution to the commentary. Lesser Panda includes a film and paintings dealing with several issues that have become synonymous with the Games.

Morris examines security concerns in a film called 1972, the year that members of the Israeli Olympic Team were taken hostage during the Munich games. The film offers a fresh, firsthand perspective on the tragic events with accounts from Georg Sieber, head psychologist for the Munich Police as well as Olympic Police during the ’72 games.

Morris also explores hot topics like road congestion, urban infrastructure and notions national image in chaotic and colourful series of paintings called ‘Rings’ named for Beijing’s Ring Roads. Lesser Panda is on until September 6th.
