This sculpture in the show. The artists are the Berlin duo……..Michael Elmgreen and Mr. Dragset. They are defenders of gays and the victims of AIDS.
This sculpture is called “THE EXPERIMENT”. A young boy with a few gender issues….. trying on his mothers high heels……..and her lipstick.
He see his future in the mirror……….and his future is staring back at him.
There is a lot of “food for thought” in this sculpture.

I spent last week-end planting like mad……..all new flowers and plants and some new planters…..it was starting to look beautiful.
Today a scaffold crew arrived at 8am and announced they were going to erect 4 scaffolds to “point” the bricks around the terrace and would be here for 8 months. There goes the summer.
ARMAGEDDON!!! Click on a scaffold to see the disaster.
