Anselm Kiefer

We finally made it to Kiefer’s Walhalla , having missed the opening before Christmas.   I kept on thinking of the impeccable orderliness of his living accommodation at Barjac as we contemplated the spectacular pandemonium of the storage space piled high from floor to ceiling with decay.  

Down the central aisle are lead beds:-

Off the aisle is a metal staircase festooned with plaster dresses:-

And the storeroom:-

We admired the wheelchair in a vitrine:-

And the plastercast dresses:-

    Wonderful photographs reminding me how I enjoyed it. Now want to visit Barjjac – does anybody know if this is possible?

  2. An extraordinary Collection. It has the feeling of a Mausoleum. Quite sinister.

    Keiffer is a remarkable artist and an erudite man, whose show at the RA two years ago gave a brilliant perspective on Germany today.

    When we went to see this I loved the paintings but did wonder about the logistics and value of transporting such huge pieces of lead across the channel. It made for a very definite contrast with the Josef Frank exhibiton at the Fashion and Textile Museum on the same street.
