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.
