Sunday Walk

I took a walk today down through The City, over the Millennium Bridge to the Tate Modern to have a look at the Duchamp, Man Ray, Picabia retrospective. The show was as I expected: very interesting from an art historical standpoint but rather soulless. There's a couple of Duchamps I liked and some of the Man Ray photographs are delightful but overall the show was a little underwhelming. I thought I'd take a look at the Juan Muñoz also as I hadn't taken as long as I'd thought I might going around the main show. I was really surprised and impressed. There were several rooms full of body casts of a very small man in a suit in a variety of poses and amongst whom you could walk. It was a rather unsettling and wonderful experience. Here's a few photos from the walk and from the Muñoz show:

It only needs you to take one or two days of those four dayed weekends of yours. Who does intimate as well as you? The crack in the floor took a leeeetle bit of breath out of me. YES IT did.

(Oh. There IS a woman. I forget her name. She does portraits in the Middle East and haunting shots of Jerusalem.)

I can not type while they're trying to wrest the crown from my head. This WAS brief.
