I Can’t Help the Way I Feel by John Isaacs

One of the many excellent exhibits that make up part of the fantastic Wellcome collection – extensive reaction from Brian Sewell here.

There is also a tiny bit of audio by Anthony Gormley talking about the body as an object AND a place – this idea of bodies being housings or shelters for the conscious seemed to strike a cord with me – as someone who is thinking a lot about what constitutes a private space. With the risk of stating the obvious, Isaac’s sculptor being headless, immense and deformed is more of a house or edifice than Gormley’s gentle figures.
