np -'84 Red Days'

Handed in two assignments this week, practical work and a theoretical essay entitled 'Avant-Garde in the Educational Institutions of Post-Revolution Russia' As I walked out of our base room a 3rd year fine art student was finishing off a wall based installation called 84 days, 281 white purse bags filled with a small embroided pear shaped 'pad' and 84 red purse bags with the same patterned 'pad' inside. I didn't get it at first and asked the artist, what the piece was all about. DOPE! I was looking at her menstrual cycle. Unlike Chris who is institutionalised I will have to get used to challenging works in my path at Uni.
