This is 1 of 3 works that were drawn out of me following a visit to Berlin. This first is my sense of the Neues Museum. People moved contemplatively through galleries of stunningly displayed Egyptian heads and figurines where I was struck by the sense of time, both multilayered and suspended – with ranks of austere state-of-the-art display cases looking like cryogenic sarcophagi, whilst occupying the historic museum interior, itself a living record of change. The museum building was famously re-cast by British architect David Chipperfield to create a stunnning modern museum whilst preserving a sense of the damage inflicted in WWII bombing on the original 19th century building.
