So Clever

One of the reasons we went to the Art Gallery was to see the Ikat Exhibition which was really beautiful and I came away very inspired. In fact I came home and immediately started tying some fabric to dye as there is an idea gaining force in my head.

There is also currently an exhibition celebrating the 40 years of John Kaldor patronage of the arts. To celebrate the exhibition Tatzu Nishi was commissioned to produce two works which are called War and Peace and In Between.

On arriving at the Gallery I wondered why there were two temporary structures at the front.

But we were encouraged to enter and were so amused by what we found. He has enclosed the two enormous sculptures into domestic settings. We just kept laughing for ages. What a wonderful mind to think of these.

Really cool! I kept clicking on the pictures to zoom in and look again and again. I bet it was even more cool in person.

I'll have to look for his work here in Washington DC.
