After all the hecticness of moving house for the first time in 12 years it’s a relief to be back in the studio this week. I also managed a little artist’s date and took myself to the National to see Michael Landy’s Saints alive.
I loved his collages using bits of paintings from the collections to explore the martyrdoms of various saints…
I also love automata so the giant moving sculptures were great too.
He makes some interesting comments in the accompanying film about saints destroying themselves through faith, and given his history of destroying everything he owned in the name of art it made some interesting parallels – in a slightly challenging way for a maker!
