A group of residents from Love Walk visited Tate Modern last week to look at some of the sculpture rooms in the new extension of the gallery. Before exploring the sculptures, the group went up to the viewing level and enjoyed some spectacular views all over London as far afield as Crystal Palace to the south, Wembley Stadium to the West, Parliament Hill to the North and out beyond Canary Wharf to the East. Our party also spotted the buildings of the Salvation Army and St Giles Church, both of which are located near the home in Camberwell.
In the gallery itself, residents saw some fantastic art in particular a sculpture of an ancient town in Algeria, made out of couscous (pictured). Penny Brice, Activities Co-ordinator, commented: “We watched films about artists in Beirut, India and China. We had a go on the swings in the Turbine Hall and visited the new installations in The Tanks. It was a really great day out!”
