I was very very excited to see A Journey That Wasn’t (2005) by Pierre Huyghe, which is part of the Journeys to Nowhere exhibition in the Medtronic Gallery. We took O. and toddler J., and we all loved loved loved it. Parts were very dark and mysterious, with sudden flashes of light, but the kids were fascinated, not scared. We explained a little bit to them about what was going on, but basically they got it: a journey, battling the wind and ice, searching for the elusive penguin, the mysterious island in the big city.
We did wonder about one of the other pieces in the exhibition — a small, plexiglass box filled with chunks of limestone. Why was the inside of the box all sweaty? Walker staff any idea?
