Scandal at the Menier
Sheesh, everyone's a critic. It was the greatest piece of art criticism since Brian Sewell told me I lacked ambition. (True story)
How many other artists have had their art work used as a coaster? As a place to put your drinks, while you look at the real art?
I can see why it happened, some might say it is my fault for making a piece of art that incorporates a shelf; it was an easy mistake to make. It didn’t help having the coat rack right next to it, and thinking about it, it was perfectly placed for people to rest their free booze while they hung their coats up.
What was it Marcel Duchamp said? Something about plumbing…
Anyway, doesn’t matter. It was quite funny actually. Here’s the piece in question. It’s called ‘Attraction’. Please go and see it, it’s on until Sat 18th Feb at the Menier Gallery. the show is a great mix of styles and the space is really special.
