Memories at the Minories

Great show of MA work at the Minories now until 22nd August. I particularly enjoyed the work of Helen Armstrong Bland, whose work from the Happy Ever After Series - Part 2 '(Un)Truths is shown above. Whimsey, darkness, storytelling all have their place here. It's also funny - I laughed out loud, which is not always appreciated in an art gallery! The work explores childhood memories against adult cynicism - which is more true? Are there such things as true and false memories? I loved the prince and princess, childhood happy ever after, buried under shredded fairy-tales. Go and see it. I also enjoyed the work of Jerzy Osmolski, where the line of a heartbeat runs through all his work. 
With thanks to Jerzy Osmolski and the Minories
