Over the weekend I went to Manchester to see my son and his lovely girlfriend. Amongst other things he took me to see an exhibition of contemporary art at the Whitworth http://www.whitworth.manchester.ac.uk/whats-on/exhibitions/currentexhibitions/msiggcollection/. I particularly liked the Yangjiang Group work which was disturbing and then so beautiful I couldn't stop thinking about it. And Ai Wei Wei's organised axe heads. Wang Peng's body prints had a strange sweetness that drew me. Also Wang Jin's photographs of his Ice Wall.
