Wow. When you go up through the volcano in the natural history museum, and pass through every geological strata and process of metal and stone and air, it is not unlike navigating the archetypal operas of straw, metal, tar, earth, and sumptuous paint on room size canvases or wooden panels. It is alchemy, these narratives of heroic quest, terror, beauty, and the ruins of civilization, compounded of earth and diamond. It's Maximal! in an art scene of digital etc minimalism, mere scribblings on a gigantic past, like the pee Monkey sprinkled on the Buddha's finger to mark his furthest leap. This is Big.

I've seen Anselm Kiefer eg in Antwerp and I'm a great admirer of his work. very impressive and not to be missed. i'm bot from London, not even from Britain, but I'll be there.
