Dame Barbara Hepworth Pelagos 1946. I love Barbara Hepworth's work. It has a modern timeless quality and easily stands the test of time. After visiting her house in St Ives, her garden gives an insight into the structural form that she so loved and perhaps drew inspiration from. I think she would have loved how the bamboo in her garden has matured.
Starting as an empty white room, Roman Ondak’s Measuring the Universe at Tate St Ives has grown through the contribution of around 90’000 participants to a constellation of black marks. Through the simple action of measuring oneself, Ondak’s work doesn’t just expand on ideas of space and the universal but also the personal, creating a growing living artwork that questions just what a museum is for.
