Yesterday, we overcame the vaporetti strikes and made it (just in the nick of time), to meet the artist Mike Nelson who is showing at the British Pavilion.

We wandered his installation and found ourselves in his signature labyrinthine corridors and rooms filled with the detritus of Istanbul junkyards.

Mike clearly explained the work in the Tate which goes a long way to explaining the House in Venice. I too would love to see it.
