Crazy golf may seem an unusual inspiration for an art exhibition but London’s Tintype gallery is currently hosting a show based on the popular game.
Running until October 27th, Crazee Golf features the work of 18 different artists – all of which have been based on the traditional concept of golf.
Admission to the exhibition is free and it could appeal to art or sport fans who are looking for something a little different during their stay at The Montcalm London Marble Arch Hotel.
A review of the exhibition by London Time Out magazine highlighted one of the unusual exhibits by artist Richard Wentworth’s piece. Entitled Flightpath it is described as “black silicone discs, squashed in vitro, suggest at first swings gone awry from Williamson’s putter, then gradually resolve into mysterious overlays for the sky – perhaps a reminder that while you may be concentrating on the ball at your feet you should still keep one eye on the horizon”.
Other work includes a hole with copies of popular novel Fifty Shades of Grey as obstacles, while the literary theme continues for Sarah Woodfine’s work which is inspired by the Wizard of Oz and Oona Grimes’s perspective is based on Alice in Wonderland.
Tintype gallery is a close to Farringdon and Chancery Lane London Underground stations and is open Wednesday to Saturday.
People staying in central London who want to enjoy a spot of golf during their getaway should consider visiting City Golf. The indoor golf club makes use of the latest technology to provide a unique experience and also offers PGA lessons to help budding pros improve their handicap. The club is a short walk from Bank and Moorgate London Underground stations and introduction lessons start from £30 each.
