`How It Is`, Miroslaw Balka currently at the Tate modern
Mysterious apparition on all hallows eve, with its own companion star.
Apart from discovering the fact that it is (fan fare...) National Sausage week, the most exciting thing that has happened to me today, is to find that they have installed a Black Hole into the Turbine Hall at the Tate Modern in London.
It`s huge and lined with a special light absorbing fabric, It has the potential to be a moment of spiritual epiphany for the brave who enter. Unfortunatley, one reporter found it to be full of phillistines with cameras and mobile phones, defeating the `hole `object (ha ha ?).
The artist crypticly says its about` everything and nothing`... which brings me to a fever pitch of excitment. Theories of interconnection , conjour not only collective concious memories of the darkest spaces of human misery that constantly reappear in the history of our people, but multiply within the entity to show that there is release in the relative oblivion of something to vast to comprehend. Would you find comfort inside , or do our inhetent insecurities and fear pervade all other sensory experience.
