last week i spent a few days visiting the latest (and much criticised) edition of the (5 yearly) ‘documenta’ art festival in kassel, germany

some of the works which i apparently found interesting enough to photograph (and therefore blog about) included this stunning installation from london-based artist goshka macuga: an enormous black & white image of an afghan landscape filled with a diverse mix of people, a snake and a rather surreal feel

it is not untill you get closer that it transpires to be a highly intricate woven tapestry that is absolutely breathtaking in its complexity and craftsmanship

of course writing about this project doesn’t come anywhere near to the experience one undergoes when actually seeing it (see previous related entries here)
