Well I can hardly believe that January is more than half over already. I’ve just been to my first exhibition of the year at Pallant House, Chichester. I particularly wanted to see “Contemporary Eye: Crossovers” because of Grayson Perry’s pots. I am including a case study of Perry in my dissertation. My dissertation – hoped to have finished it by now……… I saw Le morte de l’amour 1987, Man is born of woman 1989 and Tribal artefact for the chattering classes 1993-94. It was great because I also got to see one of his wall hangings and one of his plates, Suffer the little children 1986. I thought that Debbie Lawson’s Persian Carpet Collection was fun. She made sculpture like forms from the carpets. Also, Rachel Kneebone’s Sconce lll was beautifully made ceramic wall hanging.
I have also just been to my first belly dancing class which was fun. Unfortunately, my calf was still hurting a little from the ‘Davina’ workout at the end of the last week!! Fingers crossed it will feel a little better tomorrow.
