Mind the disembodied heads!


With some portraits, you can feel the eyes following you around the room. With Sophie Cave’s art installation make that fifty pairs of eyes – in fifty expressions ranging from disgust to shock to delight. All suspended above you in the atrium of a Victorian museum.

    How is the Kelvingrove Art Museum doing financially? It looks like they have an awful lot of overhead.

    I really want to go to Glasgow someday. I daresay that it is far from the greatest art/architectural center of the world, but it really seems to be a center for shit that I like. I am especially keen on seeing House for an Art Lover designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh and his wife Margaret MacDonald.

    I just really appreciate the tendency to create art museums out of Victorian and post Victorian constructions – creating this juxtaposition of modern art with Victorian architecture.

    Whatever you do, don’t drop acid and go to that museum!

    Interestingly, one of the casts in the display is of David Byrne. It’s the only one that talks.
