Art going to pot!

Today we reported on the artist who’s been branded ‘disgusting’ for leaving a handmade plant pot next to an exhibit by Brief Ruais whose pieces are known to sell for over $45,000 (£37,000).

The extra exhibit was provided by self proclaimed artist, SARAH SHARPE, at the Hayward Gallery at Southbank Centre, London during an exhibition titled ‘Strange Clay: Ceramics in Contemporary Art’.

The deed was accomplished on her birthday, 7th January whilst the security guard was busy talking on her phone. 

To make matters worse her pot was designed to look like a rectum prolapse ‘when part of the large intestine’s lowest section (rectum) slips outside the muscular opening at the end of the digestive tract (anus)’.

Charming!

It seems that it stood out like sore thumb, or should that be sore anus, because it was tiny and all the other pieces were towering over it.

Designer of the pot, SARAH SHARPE said that in her opinion ‘a lot of art on display is pretentious rubbish that a child could have produced.” 

She went on to suggest that her pot is probably more interesting than the stuff that was actually on display. 

Immediately after placing the pot down at the exhibition, Sarah noted that people were ‘taking pictures with it, posing next to it’ and lots ‘were laughing’.

So overall, Sarah is satisfied with her birthday excursion and believes it ‘confirms that a lot of things in art galleries aren’t that interesting,’ so she’s now planning to make more of the pots and distribute them around other galleries in London, but ‘need[s] to speak to someone in the legal profession’ first to make sure she’s not actually breaking any laws. 

She actually abandoned her pot at the exhibition, scared someone would think she was stealing from the gallery if she tried to retrieve it.

Meanwhile the Southbank Centre said that  the pot is available her to collect whenever she wants.

In the second hour of today’s programme I was joined by Margaret Mills, who for a second consecutive week, turned her attention to suffragettes and in particular to a group, from what was then Essex, who attacked the Mansion House in London back in 1910.

You can listen again here to what Margaret had to say on this subject: –

This is a bonus week for me as I’ll be back again tomorrow.

See you then I hope,
Scott
