It's that time of the week again which means it is time for my Five On Friday post hosted by Amy at Love Made My Home. Do go and visit Amy's blog and follow the links to view more Five On Friday posts.
We visited Salisbury yesterday and as we wandered through the Cathedral Green we noticed some new additions - there were several pieces of sculpture with more in the process of being assembled.
We had no idea who designed these sculptures or what they were all about and there didn't seem to be any literature around to enlighten us. However, when I googled I found out that these form part of an exhibition which opens on 12th February and runs to 3rd July and are by Sophie Ryder and the title of the exhibition is Relationships.
On reading a bit more I found out that the sculptures explore Sophie's own relationships and family interactions and at the same time challenge us to consider how we interact with each other and our own loved ones. She uses the Hare headed female figures and Minotaur males to both portray these relationships but also to disguise them by concealing the identity of the figures in the sculptures.
I must say that I found them a bit odd but when I was looking at them I didn't have a clue as to what the sculptures were all about. Having googled it all makes more sense.
