Autumn's here to stay, but there's still glorious colour out there. We went to Chatsworth to see the sculpture exhibition 'Beyond Limits' and the flowers were out in full bloom as well as the Japanese acers in all shades of blazing red and orange.
Antony Gormley's maquette of the 'Angel of the North' placed at the end of the lake.
Nikki de Saint Phalle's 'Buddha' and a flamin' hot Japanese acer in the gardens.
Guy Zagursky's 'Mirror against mirror'. Neon writing in a circular form with a mirror in the bottom reflecting it all repeatedly. This was in a grotto on a bank on the edge of a lake, mirroring the sculpture. Magic.
Yayoi Kusama's Narcissus Garden
Manola Valdes' sculpture titled 'Ariadna I' and George Rickey's 'Two lines up excentric Twelve feet'. Rickey's sculptures were my favourite, they were kinetic and moving in a rhythm I could've watched them for hours and not gotten bored. Couldn't work out if they were mechanised or if they moved by magnets, weight and gravity.
