Transcript

To be honest, the tables and the fireplaces and the beams are as evocative to me as the sculptures, possibly more so, and the chairs, the chairs upstairs, and the other piano upstairs as well, just things like that, and even that toilet through at the back which you can’t use, things like that. That is more indelibly printed on my mind probably than any one of the artworks although, actually, in a way probably if you took away some of the artworks or moved them round, I’d probably notice but I’ve just never… maybe because I went there from so young, I never really looked at it from the point of view of being a gallery and sort of looking at each object and sort of studying paintings. It was just the ambience. It’s definitely a whole atmosphere for me and not that I don’t love individual pieces but it’s the way that they’re arranged or in some cases I suppose the lack of obvious arrangement that’s so charming. I’m sure it must have all been thought through but it seems, when you first go there, like there are things in places where you wouldn’t expect to see them and that, I think, is particularly wonderful.
