An Exploration of Life

People, Home & Great Memories

'We tell ourselves stories in order to live' - Joan Didion. 

Stories inform us of where we come from & where we are going. They are the lens through which we interpret the world around us as well as make sense of who we are.

So much of cultural expression encompasses the yearning to understand our individual story & the story of ‘us’.

Tate's Director Nicholas Serota gives us a behind the scenes tour of the 2008 Cy Twombly exhibition at Tate Modern. Explaining Twombly’s process of making marks upon marks until an image is formed, explores the relationship we have with self-expression and creation. Celebrated by painters and scorned by critics, Twombly's power is set firmly by his own hand.
