They call it Modern Art

I had a wander around the Tate Modern today, I still think its full of ‘wierd shit’! However, the large sculptures can be quite impressive. The current exhibition called ‘EMBANKMENT’ by Rachel Whiteread is worth seeing. Just looking down on it doesn’t give you the scale of the piece, you have to wander around it, looking up at the huge mountain of boxes surrounded by neat stacks. from a distance they look like sugar cubes. The boxes are cast from a variety of different cardboard boxes of differing sizes and shapes. If you look closely you can see the detail of the original boxes including joints and the texture of the cardboard.
