Our favourite rainbow has been making an appearance in recent weeks. 😍 Normally appearing in November, it can be found on the piano by Brancusi's 'Prometheus' (1912). Have you spotted it before? 🌈🌈

The film 'Lumen' by Sutapa Biswas, which is part of our current exhibition, draws upon the personal experience of the artist's family, and their departure from India in the mid-1960s. The film explores themes of migration, dislocation, longing and belonging. "My mother must have been filled with fear of having to leave India. She was leaving everything - the love of her people, the love of her family, the love of her home, the love of the landscape - to go to the land of the same people who were responsible for bankrupting and violating her own place of birth. So, she must have been really ambivalent about making that journey. Had it not been for the fact that she had five children, I've often wondered whether she would have ever left India. I don't know that she would have." - Sutapa Biswas Visit 'Sutapa Biswas: Lumen' until 30 January. Click the link in our bio to pre-book your visit, or you can book your exhibition tickets on the day at Kettle's Yard. 'Lumen' was co-comissioned by Kettle’s Yard, @filmvidumbrella, @bristolmuseums, and @balticgateshead, supported by Art Fund through the Moving Image for Museums programme. @hummingbird_biswas 🌙✨

Henri Gaudier-Brzeska's 'The Dancer', part of the permanent collection at Kettle’s Yard, is a bronze cast made from the original plaster sculpture in the @tate collection. It was commissioned by Jim Ede. Gaudier-Brzeska beautifully captured the movement of The Dancer by showing her at the point where the she switches from one static pose to another. While he didn't focus on anatomical or facial specifics, it has been suggested that the model for the sculpture was the painter Nina Hamnett, who posed for Gaudier-Brzeska on various occasions. Others have commented on the likeness of The Dancer’s face to Sophie Brzeska’s, Gaudier’s life-long companion. In the winter months, the shadow of The Dancer moves across the wall, creating two dancers in the The Dancer Room 💃✨ #KettlesYard #CambridgeUniversity #InstaCamb #AutumnLight #HenriGaudierBrzeska #Dancer
