Monumental Art

Planet by Mark Quinn
I'm trying to figure out how I can wangle a trip to the UK to see Sotheby's Beyond Limits: A Selling Exhibition of Modern and Contemporary Sculpture on view in the grounds of Chatsworth House in Derbyshire, England from Monday, September 15 through Sunday, November 2 2008.
Giant babies, big bears, and another sculpture of Kate Moss, this time in a yoga pose (although I can probably do without seeing that), the twenty-two sculptures have one thing in common: they are huge. And they will command enormous price tags. I don't know where they will end up but last year's exhibition just about sold out. Personally I like them where they are - it's a great contrast with the C16th stately home. But I suppose they might get in the way when Chatsworth is used as a backdrop for films like Pride and Prejudice and Duchess.

The Breathing Sculpture

I posted this over here but I think it is something that bears repeating. The British Broadcasting Company commissioned artist Jaume Plensa to design a sculpture that pays tribute to all those killed while reporting the news. A beacon of light shines from it every night while the shape evokes an ear trumpet to hear the voices of people throughout the world.
The glass sculpture is entitled Breathing, it is a fitting memorial and a thing of beauty.

A Welcome Intervention

Just as I was thinking I needed an intervention to control my ebay addiction I find out we have to boycott ebay for a week starting Monday February 18. It's just the break I need to kick the habit. Unfortunately it still means there are six more bidding days to go and at this rate I'm going to be in serious trouble by then.
