Well. You can go see it for £25 this weekend. Because you aren't going to buy anything you must pay, if you were rich they would give you champagne and a libertys goody bag. It makes sense, you see....I saw nothing. The jumble sale of art turned everything invisible. There was a change of carpet in the bit where they put a section for hip up and coming stalls by young contemporary edgy galleries (zoo killer), without the change of surface you wouldnt notice. It's fun in a way, a sort of nihilism reducing art to clutter and stuff, and making the conceited ego driven artists the last ones in, the food at the bottom of the vip chain. A stunning blow by the rich, to get those with any metaphysical pretensions (artists) to dance like tortured monkeys for them. A confirmation of the consuming power of money.
