Wish upon a ribbon

April 3, 2011 at 9:05 pm 2 comments

Today I went on adventures to the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane to visit their Art in the 21st Century exhibition. Along with the room of finches, slippery slide and giant plastic bag sculpture was an exhibit I really liked – a wishing wall where you chose a piece of ribbon from the wall and replaced it with a piece of paper on which you wrote a wish. Apparently the artist then uses all the new wishes to make ribbons for the next exhibition, so someone somewhere might get to read my wish one day.

I chose this piece of ribbon when I made my wish as I’ve always been a bookworm!

    Hey Eileen, Ben and I made a mad dash for GOMA at 3pm this afternoon to check out the exhibition (with only 1 week left to see it we decided to race in together). The finches were beautiful and I also loved the wish ribbons…my ribbon says “I wish for a doll house”. We didn’t have time to see everything but very glad we went in today. I will drop into to the gallery book store when we go in to see one of the music documentaries next month šŸ™‚ Talk soon x Carmel

      Yes, the Gouldian finches were beautiful. We went first thing in the morning before the gallery got overrun by visitors!
