Moiro, by Anselm Kiefer

a man passed by when I was taking this photo and said: "this is how we were treated in Rome".

The Simper:

the collection moved to Jesus College in Cambridge UK -where I am now- and It is called Sculpture in close, where it is hosting a collection of sculptor's works mainly antony gormley and keifer ..

The sculptures are scattering all around the gardens and courtyards of the college and they give you a map to point them out.. there is this beautiful garden surrounded by arches in where 5 of Kiefer are standing like renaissance women in a garden I took tens of photos.. I will show more when I get back with my thoughts about it..

btw, The blood like effect in the photos the article showed didn't appear in the sculptures, maybe the rain effect caused them to vanish.. the dresses were pure white and clean but they look amazing in their context!

it is exactly as the writer of the article said_ the photo in the procure is indoors, I liked the sculpture and went to see it. but the outdoors context is charging them with a great power!
