Week 1 of Autumn 2013 – and we *dug* DIG
Our latest batch of WTC days – hurrah! – and in the nick of time to catch Artangel’s installation in what was once a 2,500 seater Odeon, was then a car park and is now a big muddy hole.
Daniel Silver had filled the site with sculptures inspired by the objects Freud kept on his desk – lumpen forms throned in puddles of reflected city, mud-caked fragments, and rows of cast white creatures from a garden centre of the mind.
We began the day at Mary Ward, where we spliced together our own movie of dream fragments. We talked pomegranates and nightmares, read some poems about Persephone and the Underworld, and headed out along Gower Street to under the foundations of UCH. Crossing a gangplank, we clambered down, down, deeper and down as the Quo would have it, to dig from the muddy word pools of our own minds.
