I'm feeling guilty that I've not written anything here for a while.... the dreaded essay still demands my attention although the end is in sight.... Soon I can go back to making books and that will make me incredibly happy.
We recently installed the work for our group show 'Overdue' in Camberwell library.We had our PV on Tuesday .. and had to speak a little about our work.. always tricky for me especially when I am not expecting it. (If I could write and talk about it I wouldn't need to make it!) Even so the PV was a lot of fun as we had drinks, nibbles and some fabulous guacamole plus an opportunity to chat with all the new MA students.
On Wednesday I went up to see the Judith Scott show at the Musuem of Everything. The old Selfridges Hotel is an interesting place to show the work with it's completely stripped out with bare walls, concrete floors and exposed pipework. It was the perfect backdrop for Judith's sculptures which were suspended in mid air casting weird and wonderful shadows. I can only imagine the amount of time each one might have taken and also what her motivation was but then it isn't always necessary to know the whys and wherefores...
I'm following my bliss.
