Beneath the Stride Of Giants
Had another visit to St Anne's this weekend. Got the train to Blackpool North and popped into the Grundy Art Gallery for an hour before Jude picked me up. I really like this gallery, it's small and quiet and they show some cool stuff. The current show has some stuff that had me laughing out loud in delight. There's a delightfully absurd cardboard box that starts talking to you and some fantastic films of an artist and family setting up practical jokes for each other with badly behaved furniture. And the centrepiece is the huge sculpture pictured 'Beneath the Stride of Giants' by Brian Griffiths made entirely from second hand wooden furniture with little wooden sculptures inside the portholes. Magical.
