Royal Academy Summer Exhibition

In the nick of time, I made it to Royal Academy's Summer exhibition.  The thoughts, ideas and discoveries of new artists (to me, at least!) are too many for one entry, so I shall share them over a few in the coming weeks.  To start with though, the initial wow factor: El Anatsui's hanging installation in the courtyard.
It fills me with joy and, ahem, ambition, to see such a beautiful and high profile piece made entirely from recycled pieces.  And the sound of it shimmering in the breeze is utterly unique.  I like the video of its installation too...
