Art imitating life??

Yes the MERL collection of ‘sticks in use’ has ended but i could ignore this find from the Yorkshire Sculpture Park yesterday. It made me smile because the forms part of Goldsworthy’s  – Sheep Pen work [which the farmer uses too]. But brilliantly this improvised beautiful sculptural stick invervention came at no cost, with no fanfare, no fancy label… but reveals everything anyone ever needs to know about ‘stuff at hand in the world’ and ‘how we go on’ oh and the artworld if they cared to look at both and think on….
