Back from a good break camping in the south of france with lots of reading, a couple of exhibitions and some time drawing.
Reading recommendations include the wonderful descriptive language of Hilary Mantel – Bring up the Bodies, thinking about memory with Julian Barnes – The sense of an ending, the textual assault of Will Self – My idea of fun, the violent truth by Robert Harris - Fear index and a brute of a book Stephen King – 11/22/63
Went to see the very moving permanent installation of Pierre Soulages black canvases at The Musée Fabre in Montpellier. The yearly pilgrimage to Chateau des Adhemar - Centre d'Art Contemporain in Montellimar which is a stunning space and yet the work always disappoints and the Musee de Miniature which never fails to give – how can you not like to see 12 camels in the eye of the needle! This year’s temporary show was of miniature origami.
