Another Bristol jaunt – Richard Long at the Arnolfini

Art, Exhibition, public Art

Yesterday I went to the Arnolfini with my Uni friend Viv to see the Richard Long exhibition, Time and Space. It’s free. Do go!

I’m particularly interested in his use of language as art, some were approaching poetry. I’d like to find a way of combining my two disciplines. There was only one large mud painting (I have referenced his mud handprints before), a new slate piece, and plenty of photographs of his interventions in the landscape he has walked. My favourite room was the one full of his smaller thumbprint pieces on found wood.

Here are a few photos to tickle your interest. I have lots of ideas to go in my research folder!
