On my way from a meeting in Glasgow last week, I took shelter from the rain in the very grand space of the Gallery of Modern Art. This wasn’t chance, though: I had seen a photograph in the Independent of a new installation by Jim Lambie, and I knew I wanted to see it. Hiding from the rain was just fortuitous.
I loved it.
I loved it all.
The floor was wonderful.
The stacks of vinyl LPs were wonderful – stuck in cement. (In case you didn’t click on the links above, the title of the work, Forever Changes, comes from an LP by Love. I looked for it amongst the petrified LPs, but I couldn’t see it.)
The chairs and handbags were wonderful.
But most of all, it just made such a good use of the whole space.
Unfortunately, my photographs aren’t half as good as the one I later found on the BBC Scotland website:
