Exhibitionist: The week’s art shows in pictures

From Fernando García-Dory and Radovan Kraguly’s study of dairy farming in Llandudno to existential photography in London, Skye Sherwin and Robert Clark find out what’s happening in art around the country.

It’s about time the 76-year-old Yugoslavia-born Radovan Kraguly’s aesthetically subtle and thematically powerful art gained wider recognition, and these two shows might just do the job. Kraguly’s The Milky Way (starts 20 Oct) is an installation that tackles ecological concerns by focusing on dairy farming. Kraguly intensifies the focus to such an extent that the theme seems as vital and primal as humankind’s dysfunctional relationship with all of nature. In tribute, Fernando García-Dory, who is less than half Kraguly’s age, has built a dairy museum scaled-up from the master’s drawing and members of the local young farmers clubs have been invited to contribute their experiences.
