SNAP 2013, Aldeburgh Festival, Suffolk, (snapaldeburgh.co.uk) 8 to 30 June

My phallic response to Britten's centenary

I'll be showing four large-ish concrete sculptures, all phallic, at SNAP at the Aldeburgh Festival next week. A glorification of the male creative principle, and the importance of having a muse. Artists including myself have been invited to respond to Benjamin Britten's life and work. This year is the composer's centenary. When Britten and Peter Pears started the festival in Suffolk in 1948, they intended it to be a celebration of music and the visual arts. Since then, the music side has continued to grow in stature into a truly international and excellent event, with the visual arts side of things getting a bit side-lined – or at any rate, not making much noise. In part, this could be due to the lack of available exhibition space at Snape Maltings.

Searching for answers in Boston Marathon bombing: The suspect’s wife

With 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev still considered unfit for interrogation, authorities will surely be asking questions of those closest to him and to his brother Tamerlan, 26, who was killed in a shoot-out with police. One person who may be able to shed light on the motives of the alleged Boston bombers is Tamerlan’s wife, 24-year-old Katherine Russell, who on Friday arrived at her parents’ home in Rhode Island, accompanied by agents from the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security.
