Books through my lens #3
Last summer I went to see an Antony Gormley exhibition at the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill-on-Sea and came across a temporary art installation entitled "Introspective Retrospective". The artist is the Japanese Tomoko Takahashi, who is known for her "playful recycling of everyday detritus of everyday life into illuminating works of art". Needless to say, I felt a stabbing pain in my chest when I saw a copy of Moby Dick "playfully recycled" as pictured above!
