The Submarines of Burlington House


I’m in London for the Monthly Open Meeting of the Royal Astronomical Society, followed by dinner with the Club. I just popped into the courtyard of Burlington House in front of the Royal Academy of Arts to see what was going on, and I found this giant fish tank full of tiny rusty submarines. Not sure what it represents but at least It makes a change! It’s part of an exhibition by Anselm Kiefer, apparently.

    Come on Peter, it’s clearly as great art as anything by Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Canova. Such technique!

    • Apparently it’s been there for a while but they have just fixed a problem that meant that the walls of the container were covered in condensation all the time so the contents were invisible..
