Inside a Russian cosmonaut

Rob took me to the Star City exhibition at Nottingham Contemporary. He said it would be ‘diverting’ for me. It was.

There’s a giant space-suited model of Valentina Tereshkova, the first woman in space. You can wander around inside it.

The blurb says:”Visitors can enter her body through her legs, as if this Tereshkova goddess is the source of all life.”
