Visual Arts

Event Horizon

Oh my. "Heaven in a box" was how one friend described Gormley's Blind Light exhibit to me.

The phrase was perfect. With the gift of sight replaced by a bright white light, all other senses were heightened. I could hear the voices of my Mum and sister calling out to me. They were close but I couldn't see them at all; I could just sense their presence.

You can be dismissive. "Just water vapour," you might suggest, "nothing more than a cloud." I absolutely disagree. The best exhibition I've seen in years.
