Walking Group - Week 5: Tramway

On Wednesday 7th March the weather had improved enough for the walking group to go out again, and we made our way over to Tramway to see two exhibitions that were very different.

Firstly we saw LOVE by Steven Campbell, an exhibition of twelve large scale multi-media collages made between 1988 and 1991 and comprising dyed string being glued on to form pictures, ranging from people to a rabbit/duck illusion that saw the former enjoying a swimming pool with some rats.

There were also two carvings and three figures made from painted socks. I personally enjoyed this section the best, there was a lot to see and every picture had so much detail and other smaller details within that I could have stayed a lot longer looking for all the tiny details.

The second exhibition we saw was Circle a video installation by Margaret Salmon. We were unable to see all her work as on a loop the videos lasted several hours.

The ones we did see involved motocross bikers, a black and white snake curling around it self, a sunset, a cat going for a walk, people enjoying Hyde Park in the 90's and monkey's in Gibraltar. I think it took around 40 minutes to watch. The snake was especially interesting to watch and as someone who isn't keen on snakes it was lovely to just watch the beauty of the patterns it made.
