The Yoko Ono-designed installation Odyssey of a Cockroach comes to London next month, to an off-site location for the ICA. Ono’s conceptual piece plots a passage through time across New York city, as seen through the low-level eyes of the hardy parasite. She took pictures of the ‘city’s corners’ to capture ‘the true reality of what our dreams and nightmares have created’. Oversized sculptures of an overflowing rubbish bin and a human rat trap are set against billboard-sized photographs of urban scenes. Odyssey takes place at 14 Wharf Road, London N1, from 5 February to 2 March.
