30th June: Tate trip 2

Michele and I had chosen three works to focus on: a return visit to the Mitch Epstein room, then to 'Tree of Twelve Metres' by Guiseppe Penone, and finishing with an installation by Lamia Joreige which I wanted to use as a way of linking the activity I will be asking the group to do, and also to the Stores trip. Lamia Joreige is a Lebanese artist, and the installation was full of objects that reminded people in Beirut of war. Some were more directly connected- radios, torches, while others were children's toys, cigarettes, and photographs.

After the gallery visit and the lovely lunch, we had special access to the top of the neighbouring building, to look down at the building work for the Tate extension. It is a fantastic view and not one many people get to see.
