An untreasured collection.

A day trip to London starting off at the quietly delightful Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green did much to restore my faith in the explorative and expansive power of art. http://www.museumofchildhood.org.uk/home/

It has been a bit of a discouraging time with my intervention at Woodbridge Museum. The narrow mindedness of a small but vocal number of the Woodbridge population simply refusing to be open to something different disturbing the dust. In contrast the exhibition ‘Treasured Collections’ was in pride of place in the Museum foyer recognising the value of collaboration with various artists. The exhibition paid homage to the collector in many of us bringing new ideas and new ways of looking at some of these collected objects through the introduction of new ‘treasures’ alongside the old.

As I passed my wrapped mower ‘Cut’ left outside to map the changes wrought by time and weather I can only hope that some will have paused to take a second look and a moment to wonder.
