Tate Modern Visit

I visited the “Tate modern Museum” recently. Due to lack of time, I was only able to see the Modern collection on the third floor.

The first thing that caught my eyes was the games for families that were provided by the museum and the small chairs and tables specifically designed for children. Another thing that grabbed my attention was a design of the entrance hall, showing different artistic styles from 1900 to the present time.

Watching Giacometti’s sculptures closely was a great experience. What he’d pointed about the distance from the art work was a good explanation about his sculpture’s proportions. Nothing really seems the same when you get closer to it! And by looking at his works I really felt the “loneliness of being equivalent to the others[i]”, the fear from loneliness, which he tries to communicate.

I so enjoyed the “three points” by Henry Moore and I found it similar to his other masterpiece in “Tehran Museum of Contemporary Arts” and surprisingly I felt being at home!

Finally I really cosider this visit as an unfinished job, I have to go there again.

    I know what is meant by “the fear of loneliness” and I think it’s in all of us to a certain extent. But I prefer to think of it as “the quest for togetherness”. I love the Tate Modern.
