Ooh, things have changed since I was last here and what a delight – the roadworks outside Somerset House have finally ended to reveal a new pedestrian area (East Strand). It’s larger than I expected, stretching from the previously isolated St. Mary le Strand through to Aldwych.
You now move from open to narrow (Somerset house entrance) returning to openness and this installation by Indian artist Jitish Kallat.
Whorled (Here After Here After Here) uses the graphics of UK road signs in a double whorl with names, distances and symbols connecting disparate places on earth and well beyond.
I enjoyed seeing Callisto connecting to Chandigarh…
the Whale galaxy next to Stuttgart, all with their distances from where I was standing.
Where do I fit in and who am I in all this?
