Zumthor and Pistoletto at the Serpentine

I was pretty excited last week, to go and check out Peter Zumthor's Pavillion at the Serpentine.  Long a fan of his work, I've not seen any of it in the flesh, so it was a great treat.  The building was strong and silent, and the experience of walking in, and discovering the garden (designed by Piet Oudolf) was sensual.  The pools of light spilling into the walkways around the focal atrium create a sense of discovery when moving towards the garden.  Lovely floral shots by Kate Foreshew.

 We also popped into the Gallery itself to see Michelangelo Pistoletto's show, The Mirror of Judgement.  It consisted of great swathes of corregated cardboard rolls at chest height, leading you to religious symbols and mirrors, encouraging spiritual self-reflection.  The gallery police were at large, yet again, so no photos, sadly!  I managed to get some screen grabs from the Telegraph review.  If you are keen, here's the link to read more. Pistoletto-The Mirror of Judgement Serpentine Gallery Review

I did, however, manage this cheeky shot.....
