A bumper day for gallery interaction – over 70 people got involved, musing on the exhibits, or drawing on the terrace, creating a lovely sense of participation rather than mere observation. Some great comments summed up the varying responses:

” All the objects sing together “One Love” by Bob Marley.”

Uterus Vase. Stephanie Rollin and The Plug. “I am the empty vessel in your body. I have been used and now wait to be filled once more. But you stand there and say no! Never again in this lifetime. I say, well you are too old anyway!!”
Lucy, Australopithecus Afarensis. Marguerite Humeau. ” Hear my ancient voice in the new world. Do we speak the same language?”
