Monumental Junkyard:

Martin Gropius Bau
Niederkirchnerstra├če 7, 10963 Berlin

Monumental Junkyard: Named by the accusation of the Lewis Glucksman Gallery dumping marble doors outside in Ireland. These materials used were reproduced in Chinese Marble, that continues to be used in kitsch interior d├ęcor, lifted back from the renaissance sculpture.

'The reproduction of wasted domestic doors in marble responds to issues of regeneration and historical-preservation, material and symbolic value, and the ambiguity of contexts as part of affluent consumerist society.'

Tate Modern in the Spring.







Don't you love visiting the places you wondered around when you were young? The Tate was the place to be with my mama, always seeing new installations, always looking at The Snail by Matisse.

I took a revisit with a few friends and my lovely Fujica, to browse the rooms of the old power station.
Finding William Eggleston and Dan Flavin on the way.

Photo diary: nineteen candles








This year I spent my birthday a little differently, being stuck in my little town I now call home in the South West of England. I took the day off away from my new little family at my job at the local department store, and enjoyed a selection of fine foods and stylish delights to hold with admiration.

And what a beautiful day it was, to receive a little gift from the ladies at work, my parents popping in with a freshly whipped victoria sponge (mamas know best), a fiasco with attempting to make homemade gnocchi twice, and finally, a talk over a coup of Kir Royales about our soon to be anniversary and trip to Paris with my loved one.


I am a very lucky lady indeed.

Photo diary: Berlin







 



Travelling to and from - neglecting my blog and other social networks.
Berlin was a beautiful experience, so much to see and do, not enough time on my hands for it, or enough clothes for that matter.
Every building and corner of each street is something completely new and different, the architecture is insane. It contrasts dramatically through out each district.
