‘Actions. The image of the world can be different’
A group show at Cambridge’s newly reopened Kettle’s Yard—an experimental gallery space established in the 1950s by the art collectors Jim and Helen Ede—has been curated with a special “attention to detail,” writes Lucy Scholes in the NYR Daily. “The thoughtful positioning of a few select works beyond the four walls of the new gallery establishes a sense of continuity between the museum’s history and its present. Sculptor and installation artist Cornelia Parker has adorned the window panes of Helen’s bedroom with streaks—of rain, or of tears?—drawn with chalk from the white cliffs of Dover. In the downstairs extension, an arrangement of ceramicist Edmund de Waal’s porcelain pays homage to Ede’s own carefully placed pieces.”
