A lovely day out today up in London to visit the niece and ‘do’ the museums and a pub.
First on the hit list, with a very big hit, was to see Doug Aitken’s ‘Black Mirror’ at Victoria Miro, starring the gorgeous Chloë Sevigny. Here’s my rather shaky attempt, hand-held in the dark with the thundering base vibrating the room.
Then a rather tasty lunch followed by a stroll to the British Museum to try (in vain) to get to see the Grayson Perry exhibition. But it was completely full up and so a return visit will be required. That’s a hardship, then!
I did manage to get a few hand-held snaps of the wonderful British Museum’s Great Court roof (Foster & Partners) in the evening light after strolling through the corridors of ancient Egypt and Greece. I think we ought to hang on to the Elgin pieces for a while, don’t you? Otherwise the French & Germans will be having them as loan guarantees…
