I love to visit the tate modern when in london. I would really like to visit now with a return of Louise Bourgeois ... I was there in 2000 to see this amazing sculpture of hers..

I am also very curious to see Shibboleth - the work of Columbian artist Doris Salcedo. A crack in the floor of the old power station, running the whole length of the hall.. some powerful messages...

Hear more about it here.

    Hello! There are pictures on my blog of my recent trip to London of both maman and the crack!! THe spider is as fantastic as ever and outside it is quite something - if you look at it one way she could almost be said to be eating St Paul's Cathedral!
