Also on the agenda is a trip to Antony Gormley's Angel Of The North, a massive steel sculpture on the outskirts of Tyneside. Gormley is my favourite artist, unashamedly democratic, and very straightforward - he wants to create work that echoes the massive civic architecture of ancient Egypt and he wants the public to visit it, go "wow", buy an ice-cream and go home talking about football. Gormley is'nt deep - his stuff just adds to the environment.
CCP's apartment is great - light, airy and well-proportioned, and is her own space. This is important because all the time we hung out with CCP in London, she was renting a room in the house of a mad-woman called Sue. For the first time we get to see all of Cristiana's personality via her own space. Like her personality her apartment is a riot of colours, information, ideas, fascinations as well as art and is complex without being complicated.
