My review on Patti Smith

Patti Smith's exhibition was sad. It was about her friend Robert who was a photographer and who died of AIDS.
The exhibition basically showed photographs that he took and some that she took.

She took pictures of some hospital beds representing the ward that he stayed in when he was sick. But she felt that she was decorating the room, so she covered them up, but we were allowed to lift them up to have a look.
The exhibition made me feel sad and a bit sorry for her.

She also had a relaxation room where recordings of her reciting poems were played. And there was a big screen showing the sea and on the floor there was a trampoline with a projection of the sea on it as well.

Some may find the exhibition boring but I thought it was interesting and sad.

We also met Patti Smith. She was really nice and took a photo of us.


PS Happy now Darren?!
