It’s All Crap

by | 29th, October 2003

‘“MAGGOTS, skeletons, fear and death,” screams the Telegraph. No, not a look inside the decaying body of the Tory Party, or a Halloween preamble, but this year’s Turner Prize.

Prize entry

Foolishly, the paper has ignored Anorak’s Vomit Into Woollen Sock exhibit, choosing instead to lead with ‘Sex’, the latest work from Jake and Dinos Chapman.

Sadly, no pictures of the pair’s inflatable dolls engaged in sexual activity (how do they think these things up?), or the maggots issuing from decaying flesh are reproduced for our horror.

This is not art that pays much heed to Rolf Harris’s game of “Can you see what it is yet?” – for it looks pretty much like crap from first to last.

But the Guardian, a paper that knows about these sort of arty things, hears critics say that this is the most impressive Tuner Prize show for a decade.

But then they have seen our Vomit Into Woollen Sock…’
