On Friday I had some time to kill in the afternoon and as it was rather chilly I decided to have a look at the British Museum (where I hadn’t been for years), forgetting it was Good Friday and therefore heaving. I did find a few quieter sections, though and was able to take a few photos. No chance getting into the temp exhibtions that required booking, though. A few photographic impressions below:
Sowei mask, a free temp exhibit.
Clockwork horses in Mesopotamia? Surely not.
Reminded me of The Exorcist, for some reason
How many faces do you see?
A few more on flickr.
I had a few hours to kill before the Coal Porters gig on Saturday so I wandered around the South Bank a bit as it was actually a nice day. It was, however, rather chilly so I decided I needed to warm up. Having never been to the Tate Modern, I decided to have a look around. I don’t claim to understand modern art but I hoped there would be a few things that grabbed my attention. While there was a lot of pretentious wank (and pretentious wankers among the visitors), there were a view pieces that at least showed some skill (in my opinion). These are just photographic impressions, no titles or names of artists.
