If you are contemplating installing some statues in your house, head no further than the Art Gallery of NSW for some inspirations.
The Tatzu Nishi exhibition exemplifies what I love about the Art Gallery. No matter how wacky an idea seems to be, someone somewhere just gathers enough courage to run with it.
In this case, it's the domestication of a couple of larger-than-life equestrian statues. Horse head in the cupboard? Why not. A warrior on the bed? Only if he's riding a horse. Mr Nishi, you are incredible desu ne.
And while you are there, why not refresh yourself at the Gallery Cafe with a cup of coffee and some delectable cakes and tarts. There's no rush. Just you and some appreciation of all things art.
