Black Butterflies has been running for several weeks now and I have to say that it is providing me with some of the most stimulating conversations I’ve known with visitors since we opened the gallery over three years ago. Not everyone likes the art, but that’s not what the art is here for. People do engage with it though, and with the surrounding issues. Topics touched on just in the last few days, in no particular order, include My Big Fat Gypsy Weddings, white middle class ‘gadjo’ guilt, York’s Jewish massacre at Clifford’s Tower, the Holocaust, territory, freedom, boundaries, pastoral ideals, traditional societies, Aboriginal conceptions of time… I must start keeping a more accurate record of these conversations. Perhaps I should record them? At any rate, there are hopefully many more to be had as the show still has three weeks to run.
