Exhibition visit

I recommend a visit to Victoria Art Gallery Bath to see Edwina Bridgeman Ship of Fools Exhibition.

This is an exhibition in a respected art gallery that appeals to children as well as adults, crossing the boundary of art and craft. It has me asking questions. What is art? Do you need to bring a certain knowledge to understand it? I think anything can be art in the right context.

The installation is interactive, naive, which brings a connection with play, childlike and children.

The more time I spend looking I appreciate each figure as an individual character with its own personality. The exhibition has informed me of another way to use found materials and objects to create other forms.
