More Moore / Less Sark
Two unrelated bits of gossip.
Sev tells me Henry Moore’s Knife Edge is being replaced on its plinth in Greenwich Park. I’m delighted about this – after all, it’s the position Moore himself chose for the sculpture and the fact that the gates are locked at night, the park’s patrolled during the day and the thing weighs so goddam much it’s hardly going to be a top target for thieves. Unlike, of course, the unique and very precious Incredible Dyslexic Manhole Cover
And the Cutty Sark pub is closing for a couple of months, reopening at Christmas. I believe some sort of giant extension is happening out the back.
Just thought you’d like to know.
