In relation to the colourful installation by Samiee the model renewed its creator’s hope of a brighter more creative future. I was delighted.
My niece however, was already on to the next room. After a short extatic moment in Constant’s room where she picked the Space eater as her favourite she moved on quickly. Her voice, now demanding, called us to the next room. As we were too slow to respond she came to get us in person. “You NEED to see this” a dramatic pleading in her eyes.
It seemed that all her favourite pieces in the Kunstmuseum were trumped by Bruce Nauman’s red button next to his Carrousel, 1988. Her eyes grew wide with excitement as the museum guard told her she could press it.
I exhaled relieved. A red button I can manage for her next birthday.
