21st Century Exhibition at GoMA

Looked in on the current exhibition the other day - Art from the first decade. A big percentage of the exhibition is from the gallery's own acquisitions, so a little disappointing in that I have seen many of the exhibits before: some as recently as at last year's APT. But there was one particular work that floated my boat - the installation by Boursier-Mougenot. This involves a room full of live finches that make music by landing on coathangers attached to 'musical' wires as per a harp or something like that.

It is easy to miss this if you don't know where to find it - right up in the SW corner of the 3rd floor and there is a limited number of people allowed in at one time, but if you have to queue, it is worth the wait. It is a delightful, peaceful, other-worldly experience - could easily have hung out there for ages.
