|A visit is strangely magical|
The conceit was that on show is a number of display cabinets related to a romance situated in Istanbul Turkey.
In fact the display cabinets are from a museum that was conceived at the same time as the story by Nobel prize winner Orhan Pamuk.
The items shown are bewitching and woven to make a narrative, low lighting adds to the atmosphere.
Having seen the exhibition I'm reminded of people who are no longer in my own life, I'd like to do something similar to construct an assemblage - but to do something so splendid would be quite a challenge (it would have been my fathers 96th birthday today - it's odd how little we know of people who are our models in life, I often think of Graham Swift's book, Shuttlecock about this topic).

If you get a chance do visit the Museum of Innocence and let me know if it has a pull for you as it did for me (and if you've read the book what do you reckon?)
Much (beloved and feared too) the Dalek is available in different colours including Red.
