and surprise surprise
well it was the british art show
amongst plenty on offer we saw keith wilson's zone 1
and the amazing, highly acclaimed The Clock , Christian Marclay's 24 hour montage of clips from several thousand films showing scenes featuring clocks and watches, or situations indicating a particular time of day.
There's still a week of the British Art Show left, and it's well worth making the effort to get to England's western-most city.
Plymouth is one of those cities - a bit like a land that time forgot - a real sense of a bygone importance replaced with a note of ennui. It definitely has a charm though, a melancholy charm, in the way that seaside towns and cities do. oh and a great 1950's utopian outdoor shopping centre.
