Popped in to Margate's Turner Contemporary Art Galery to see Rodin's The Kiss. It is fabulous. The maleness and feminity expressed in the marble is astonishing.
The photos were taken on my iPhone into the light so are not good.
The gallery is currently showing Tracy Emin's collection 'She lay down deep beneath the sea." Ms Emin is a local girl, born in Margate and trained in Medway and Maidstone. I don't understand her art but she is a wonderful person who is doing her best for her home town - unlike the council who have turned Margate into something resembling a post apocolyptic wasteland. So for God's sake buy something in one of the few shops not yet boarded up when you visit. The gallery does a great mug of tea, incidentally.
