Bob Dylan Set To Put Iron Sculptures On Display

Bob Dylan will open an exhibit of his iron sculptures in London called "Mood Swings" this November. Speaking with the BBC, Dylan said that his relationship with the metal goes back all the way to his youth:

"I've been around iron all my life, ever since I was a kid. I was born and raised in iron ore country - where you could breathe it and smell it every day. And I've always worked with it in one form or another."

He added that of particular interest to him is the form of the gate:

"Gates appeal to me because of the negative space they allow. They can be closed but at the same time they allow the seasons and breezes to enter and flow. They can shut you out or shut you in. And in some ways there is no difference."

The display will be viewable at the Halcyon Gallery from November 15 to January 25, 2014.
