MY PIECE AT THE ICA
Went to a cocktail party at the Institute of Contemporary Art last night. The food and drink were fabulous, they had live Irish music, and the guests were all furnituremakers and craft people, who are a down-to-earth and convivial lot, more so than you might normally find gathered at a museum function. I also got to see the two current exhibits which were both terrific in their own way. I couldn't resist adding to the Poetry Wall in the corridor. I was hampered by a dearth of actual words (I didn't want to destroy anyone else's work to create my own) but ended up with a nice little ditty, inspired in part by the huge pink cocktail I had been handed earlier!
