Tate Modern. we saw Ai Weiwei's amazing Sunflower Seeds which consists of millions of hand-crafted husks in the Turbine Hall. each one was hand-painted individually; a truly mammoth task taken on by residents of a village in rural China with a history of specialist porcelain work. sadly you can no longer walk or lie on them as they were found to give off too much dust when the exhibit first opened. consequently the urge to reach over the cordon and fondle them is excruciatingly overwhelming - but there are guards everywhere to halt anyone who cannot resist the compulsion!
Gauguin exhibition - an extensive collection of paintings, woodcuts, sculptures and sketches - a delight to see so close up, but sadly just too full of people so we rushed through in order to get to the exit.
