Henry Moore Institute and Leeds City Art Gallery

On the same day i also took a trip to go look at the new exhibition on at the henry moore institute.

this was the  Asta Gröting Sculpture: 1987-2008

i found some of it interesting like trying to figure out how certain sculptures were made and the processes using certain materials such as the space between two people having sex in rubber.i also quite liked the globular sculpts that came out from the wall.i think it was purely on the fact i wanted to touch them.i also quite liked the huge clump of earth which was suspended on the wall as if it had just been perfectly dug up and put there.

I also went next door to have a look at the 'Rank' exhibition.i did not find this interesting whatsoever so literally walked around the room and left.the only thing that interested me was that there was some little doll of the queen or something presented in a bell jar which was relevant to my project

  1. It's interesting that you didn't find the Rank exhibition interesting. That's fine, but it would be useful to say why. As part of the theoretical underpinning of the module communication theory has been mentioned. You could ask, why didn't this exhibition communicate to you? Was it over curated? You weren't perhaps given the chance to engage with the work by using your own ideas.
    I remember clearly being advised when I was a student, that if I didn't like a particular artwork then there might have been something in the work that I was avoiding, and that therefore I should give it a second chance.
