Art Academy trip to the Hepworth Gallery

Day 2 of my ART - tour. We went to check out
the Hepworth, and the Hepworth prize for
Sculpture. Helen Marten was my favourite, her
work has a completely different feel, a
freshness, from entering the room, a lightness
and expansiveness. Phyllisa Barlow’s piece
I just, I wanted to leave, I didn’t get it,
and then, at the far side, when I turned
around, and saw it from the top, suddenly
I understood. And that moment, realisation
and shift, now seems, and seemed to be the
most important part of the work.
Here are photos, and some of the beautiful
print and signage. I love the idea of standing
next to a Henry Moore piece, and taking
photographs of the print material.

Eva Hesse

I went to the Fruitmarket gallery in Edinburgh to see the William Kentridge show. Last summer I bought a copy of Eva Hesse’s diaries from the bookshop at hte gallery, and hadn't read it, I took it to it’s rightful home for the day, and read (about half) on the train.
