October 2014 14


Saturday, 4th October

There was a brilliant Simon Hattenstone interview with Grayson Perry, in The Guardian today.

Perry gives himself 7 out of 10 as a man, and 0 out of 10 as a woman.

I added the ‘Get Out Of Jail Free’ card because of the following Grayson quote, but also because this card seems to exist in real life.

“You have to know the impact of everything you’re making, because that is the nature of contemporary art. It is very self-conscious: it knows, or should be seen to know. Irony has become this crippling get-out-of-jail-free card. Britain has the toad of irony sitting on it.”

The child’s drawing to the left of the ‘Jail’ card is a self portrait of Julia Lena Morell.

    • It was extremely busy at the weekend, crowds around the Grayson stuff. Haven’t had those kind of crowds for ages. One of my colleagues said she hadn’t seen a day like that for 10 years. Come early in the morning, or before closing time, if you want to get a good look 🙂
