The memory of place

Keiko Mukaide - The memory of place

If you are in striking distance of York this summer, I have two suggested ports of call for you.  The first is the city’s art gallery for their Henri Fantin-Latour exhibition, which includes three or four of his paintings of roses, though sadly not the one that graced the cover of New Order’s Power, corruption and lies (that’s in the National Gallery).  It ends on 23 September.  Running until 28 October is The memory of place, an installation within the deconsecrated St. Mary’s church by Keiko Mukaide.  Its combination of a once sacred space with water, glass and flame was a welcome contemplative corrective to one too many trips to see the grand installations in the Turbine Hall of Tate Modern.
