21st Century: Art in the First Decade

9 Jan

After a week of being taunted by amazing photos on facebook, I finally got the chance to go to GoMA and see the 21st Century: Art in the First Decade exhibit with Luke (my jam making friend). Fantastic art works, installations, activities for the kids (that I hope to go back when it’s a little less heavy on the child traffic and give a go) and other visual treats for the eyes (included some Damien Hirst wallpapers!)

I believe I’ll let the photos do the majority of the talking on this one! And I highly recommend going to see this!

A few of my favourites include

  • the large fibreglass elephant, on the verge of death, covered in bindis.
  • The two Damien Hirst wallpapers (one is flowers with cigarette butts, the other is pills corresponding to biblical verses)
  • Knitted peacock (AKA – One of the gayest things I’ve ever seen)
  • Giant structure made of plastic bags
  • The wall covered in chinese advertising
  • Mosaic made of pieces of mirror (the light bouncing from this was amazing, and the photos don’t do it an iota of justic)

    Did you see the Aviary with the finches?

      ..no 😦 See, I really do need to go back! Though I loved in the kids section the little zoo that had plush animals in it.
