Articulation at the ROM

During Articulation's visit to Toronto this November the members spent many hours at the Royal Ontario Museum.
One of the delights was getting up close to El Anatsui's Straying Continents.

A metal tapestry commissioned by the ROM in 2010.

El Anatsui continues to use his signature flattened  liquor bottle tops but this work has large areas of the tops cut into lengths twisted together.

As a result this work is more likely than his others to alter it's shape while hanging on the wall.
