HOW CLOSE ARE WE UNTIL FINISH LINE FOR 2017, HUH?
THIS WEEK WAS A BIT OF A STRUGGLE AS I WAS RETURNING FROM SUNNY HOLIDAY MID-WEEK AND CATCHING UP WITH WORK.
AT LEAST THE WEEK WAS NOT ONE OF THOSE WHERE I HAD TO SCRAP FOR CULTURE, BECAUSE THERE WAS QUITE A FEW THINGS GOING ON. WEEKEND DELIVERED THE STUNNING FLOE: A CELEBRATION OF THE DEEP AND THE BEAUTY OF SEA.
First however I did some day time catching up with culture. In town an interesting taxi appeared right in time for my culture wonders, which brightened up my morning.
My main mission was to visit Hull Streetlife Museum for Lady Chesterfield’s sleigh.
Little that I knew that I’ve seen it before, its been there for ages and Hull 17 was just reminding us of the existing exhibits in Hull. This unique artefact from Hull City Council’s collection is believed to be of Russian origin, dating back to 1810. The front of the passenger’s carriage is painted silver and gold and is shaped like a mythical unicorn.
And then there was the WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE robots in the gardens.
I’ve heard some feedback from other Hull patriots, culture seekers that it is not as great as expected, but I am leaving it for this week to find out my own thoughts.
On Sunday, despite my mild hangover and workload, I visited the FLOE: A CELEBRATION OF THE DEEP AND THE BEAUTY OF SEA.
I had high expectations, considering how amazing the first week of this year kicked off with sound/light installations Made in Hull.
It was nearly as good as Made in Hull, there was little something missing, but I can’t point out what.
The cold and almost snow added that little bit of magic to the experience.
Everything is a little celebratory and festive, offices lit up, families gathering – just lovely.
I am hoping for some more culture this week, something exciting, festive, colourful and maybe magic, but the reality might hit me when the workload is too much.
Desperate to have the second visit to LIMITLESS
It closes on the 13th December and I am really hoping I can get in. The place promised creative change in space and after all the workshops, the change could be impressive.
