Jaume Plensa

Visiting the Jaume Plensa exhibition at Yorkshire Sculpture Park I found myself immersed in a moving sensory world of meaning. I enjoyed the way the work provoked multiple senses, tracing the letters with my fingers and listening to the deeply resonant sound of the brass gongs.

I was most deeply moved by the room filled with massive alabaster heads and it hit a note of deep spirituality in me. The notes in my journal were my thoughts there and then...

alabaster heads
tomb-like   asleep or dead?
memorial, meditative
calm but not sleeping?
subtle shading and smooth texture like a black and white photo.
Listening to deep resonance of a gong
soft light of tinkling metal letters
sublime, spiritual, moving
deeply affecting
