Wheeling around the Yorkshire Sculpture park.

Yesterday we visited the YSP to view Yinka Shonibares exhibition – FABRIC-ATION.

ysp shonibareThe work was fantastic, as is all his work, colourful, thought provoking and  pertinent.

imagesI did struggle at first with the different view point – as it was the first time ever I’d been round an exhibition in a wheelchair, (legs very much not doing what I asked of them) – but rallied quickly after realising that 90% did not require looking up (neck joint in sympathy with the legs).

I’ve had two weeks of pain and exhaustion but this exhibition was inspiring. I have not touched any art or craft work since the beginning of the summer but am feeling that there is a bit of space in my head for creativity. Wouldn’t some of his fabrics look good in glass?

FABTIC-ATION ends on September the 1st, don’t miss it.
