Just caught the Antony Gormley exhibition at Kettles Yard.     The house is wonderful. It was once the home of Jim and Helen Ede. Jim was a curator at The Tate Gallery.  He left a carefully positioned collection of artworks alongside furniture, glass, ceramics and natural objects, with the aim of creating a harmonic whole.
