Whatever Happened to the Space Age£57.17
ARTIST + S T A T E M E N T …
I have always been a hoarder, newspaper clippings, postcards etc. It is only now that I have decided to recycle them.As an 11-year-old I watched the first moon landing in 1969. I was mad about everything to do with space travel, I would read anything that was about rockets, cosmonauts and astronauts. Later in my life I shook the hand of a man who shook the hand of my all time hero Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin, that was for me like touching history, if only secondhand (excuse the pun).I have just been rummaging through old boxes of stuff and found the picture above – yellowed and faded – it still makes my heart flutter. I wish I’d been to the moon.
