Bruce Nauman at the Tate Modern

After 10 months of not seeing anything, I rather enjoyed the Bruce Nauman show at the Tate Modern. It was also just nice to do something that wasn’t a walk in the cold and wet.

A video still of two hands manipulating a deck of cards. The hands are a luminous green, and the cards are a pink / magenta colour.
