  • We leave a charge:
    A transfer of current in physics
    A right enforceable in our minds
    A cost in the quantum of alcohol consumed for the tops
    A loss of the sight beholden: Lethe, mèmory, Mnemosyne, ai shi ne, Esu, chance and all

  • I've seen a lot of art from recycled material but this work reaches an entirely new level. It is thrilling, magnificent,gorgeous, from a distance and close up. It evokes textiles, chain mail, cloth of gold ancient and modern at the same time. I feel so grateful to Mr. El Anatsui and to TBM for bringing the breathtaking work to us in New York.

    These things give me a feeling of happiness. THEY TINKLE AND shine and make me feel happy.

  • So amazing, so wonderful. Such a manifestation of genius, imagination and humanity.
