bjork lovefest continued

Soft Sculpture exhibition @ NGA

This exhibition was the dictionary definition of radness. Ready made, accessible, visceral art. Canberra people- check it out. You know how damn broke I am, but I still shelled out the coin to buy a book about Lauren Berkovitz. Basically, she is a huge gangster. The piece below she made out of plastic bags.
