Leeds Met exhibition

ok now this was a long time ago.just trying to catch up on my blogging whilst i temporarily have the internet today

The main piece i went to see at the met was Cornelia Parkers floating bricks as part of the ' Perhaps nothing, perhaps something' exhibition.

I really liked how it seemed to be suspending time and how the front bricks stayed stable on the ground and as you moved around the piece the suspended pieces began to sway.i had a look at Parkers other suspended work and i think they look amazing making things that seem quite heavy object weightless in time.

at this exhibition i also saw Rachel Whitereads casts of the undersides of chairs in resin.i suppose i didn't think they were that visually appealing to me but it might have been to do with the dank green and browny colours that the resin was cast.It all seems a bit too easy aswel.I'm not to sure really how i feel on them.

the rest of the work in the exhibition was pretty shocking i thought. it was one of these times when i went oh so anything can be art nowadays and also how did this kind of stuff get into a gallery space. someone must have liked it. it certainly wasn't me though.

it was quite a small space for a gallery but still reasonable sized to place work.i liked how the front of the gallery is glass so you can see inside at the work when it isn't open. also if it is open and the lights are on and its getting a bit darker then the gallery will illuminate inviting visitors
