A brief visit
Tate Modern (the free one basically, in the vast industrial sized Turbine Hall.) Ai Weiwei, a Chinese artist has filled the enormous space with 100 million sunflower seeds - each one individually sculptured in porcelain and each one different from the other. I think he had a little bit of help but the shear size and scale is impressive
It's sad to think that the artist responsible was arrested by the Chinese authorities earlier this month as he tried to board a plane to Hong Kong. His whereabouts is still unknown.
I would just like to say how touched I was by all the kind comments I found on my blog when I got back. 'Thank you' Your comments are all so very encouraging. And twenty five followers I feel honoured.
