SIGNPOST TO JUPITER by Peter Liversidge
Jupiter Artland is a sculpture park outside Edinburgh. I don’t normally really like these kinds of places, but this worked pretty well.
My main reason to go was to see a Charles Jencks installation there. It was huge, it was interactive, it was arty artifice and i really liked it and the heavily manicured piece worked particularly well in amongst the more natural setting:
Images of LIFE MOUNDS by Charkles Jencks “a landform celebrating the cell as the basis of life”…and yes i flipped the photo upside down, the sky was way more dramatic in the reflection…now i think it looks a bit like the Sidney Opera House.
and here are some people interacting with the piece:
some other stuff also there:
LANDSCAPE WITH GUN AND TREE by Cornelia Parker, i especially enjoyed the irony of middle class children playing with giant guns…incidentally, according to the blurb it might be loaded…
WEEPING GIRLS by Laura Ford, i didn’t really like this but the creepiness kind of stayed with me and it reminded me of a couple of Japanese horror flicks i had seen and really liked (namely the ring and dark water)
SPLAT – my title, the official title is OVER HERE by Shane Waltener (i think my title is better…)
