Mr. Dot & I were at the Serpentine gallery, seeing a great talk by the curator of the Gustav Metzger show (currently on, definitely go see if you're in town) & the first thing I noticed about Eleanor was her bag. My darling father's name was Art, short for Arthur, and I felt like it was a sign that he was watching over me at that moment.
In Eleanor's own words:
'How sweet of you to send these through. They are great (although they remind me that the pasty look is not such a tasty look).
I was at the talk because I have just started my MA in 'art, sex, war and gender politics since 1960' at the Courtauld Institute of Art. It is one of the finest institutions to study art history at, so this feels like a really exciting time for me. Whiling away saturday afternoons at the Gustav Metzger show suddenly counts as 'work'!
The bag was bought at the Venice Biennale this summer. I consider myself a proud art tart!'
