As I sit over my calendar trying to figure when to do what my mind keeps drifting back to a gallery opening I went to on Thursday evening.

I’ll sing you a song from around the town is renowned performance artist Amanda Coogan’s latest work and combines live performances with sculptures. Over a series of six weeks the Irish artist will move from sculpture to sculpture and perform individually designed performance pieces. As she moves on a collaborator will take her place, in the end all six performance piece will run simultaneously.

I am looking forward to experiencing this exciting and unique living work of art, even if I am not quite sure that I will fully understand it. After all, even though I am interested in the Arts,  performance pieces often elude me.

So as I try and figure out how to fit everything in to my 168 hours this week I am trying to find a time slot that I can use to visit the RHA over the next six weeks – I want to see the domino effect of performances and experience this Irish Artist in the stunning setting that is the RHA.

So as I ponder performance art and wrestle with my calendar I can’t help but feel grateful for my first world problem.
