  • At the Tate Gallery

    Challonerart was very impressed by the conduct and application of many of the students when we visited the Tate on Wednesday. Before entering the gallery we had a tour of the local area and spotted 5 sculptures dotted around the apartment blocks and shops that surround the Tate, including ones made of stone, one cast in bronze and one statue of a male figure that made several students feel uneasy because it moves. In the gallery we looked specifically at sculpture on the 4th floor. Particular favourites seemed to be two sculptures of trees, a bright blue crystalised engine and a large mirrored box.
