‘FIRST up, a big hearty thanks to all of you who sent in vomit and socks.

Saved for the nation

Our installation is progressing nicely, and we’ll be exhibiting our collective work ‘Vomit In Sock’ all over the steps of the Saatchi Gallery later today.

It’s a shoo-in for the Turner Prize, and will ably fill the void left by the destruction of so many fine modern works of art yesterday.

But the Telegraph says that a far worse disaster was narrowly averted. It was luck, fate, call it what you will that caused works by Tracy Emin to be removed from the now decimated Momart warehouse shortly before the fire.

A spokesman for Emin says that the artist with the gift for turning ordinary objects into ordinary dirty objects removed her stuff from the warehouse recently, thinking the items would be safer in her London studio.

It’s not for us to cast aspersions, but with so much of the competition now out of the way, Emin’s portfolio could be very much in demand, and worth a lot more than it was pre-fire.
