Killing Time At the Gallery

13 Dec

We had a little bit of time to kill the other day,

so we wandered down to the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA)

to check out the “Sugar Spin” exhibition.

As soon as we got through the door,

we were confronted with this massive fluro hairy installation

that spread up and across the walls.

Kind of bizarre.

But, we didn’t stop there for long,

as we were headed for the larger than life “In Bed” sculpture.

Doesn’t she look realistic.

I just wanted to reach out and touch this sculpture

to confirm for my brain that she wasn’t real.

But I didn’t.  I’m not a gallery rebel.

I have a bit of a love-hate thing going on with Modern Art.

Some of the pieces are just weird and ugly,

while others are weird but kind of alluring and beautiful.

The curious and outlandish nature of Modern Art just draws me in.

There is some beauty to be found in it,

even if it’s a bit twisted and distorted.

We saw one of these PixCell deers in New York.

The one in New York was much nicer.

Anyway, our forty minutes at GOMA was quickly over,

which Hubby was very thankful for.

He’s not a Modern Art fan at all.

But I think the boys and I will return to “Sugar Spin”

after the school holiday rush.
