POP! Tay­lor Swift It hasn’t taken Tay­lor Swift long to grad­u­ate from green­horn coun­try singer (she moved to Nashville at the age of 14) to one of the most suc­cess­ful pop stars of the past five years. Swift’s coun­try back­ground of nar­ra­tive song­writ­ing has ben­e­fited her tremen­dously – she is easily the best fe­male pop-song sto­ry­teller of her gen­er­a­tion. ART Mag­gie Mad­den: Field Marie Far­ring­ton: In Good Faith They Waited for Grav­ity Mag­gie Mad­den’s Field is a lin­ear in­stal­la­tion that snakes its way through Rua Red’s big main gallery. It’s frag­ile and vul­ner­a­ble, and then you re­alise that it has colonised the space, echo­ing the way sub­ur­ban­i­sa­tion has qui­etly eaten into the ru­ral ter­rain in the real world out­side, though the so­cial fab­ric is still del­i­cate. Fragility is also rel­e­vant to Marie Far­ring­ton’s sculp­tures, which ex­plore how we im­bue ob­jects and ma­te­ri­als with mean­ing.
