JADE Goody: Anorak’s at-a-glance look at Jade Goody’s post-reality career, with Mark McGowan’s art tribute…

Jade Goody’s death to be turned into an ‘art’ work. No, not the big Madame Tussauds Goody Friday life-size tribute candle – pick a wick, any wick.

Mark McGowan will re-enact the final hours of Jade Goody’s life. It’s not a parody, but a tribute.

While we await the Jade Goody film – a story told with action figures fashioned from take-away boxes and Muppets – McGowan prepares for his show at Cordy House, in Shoreditch, east London. Ticket’s £25, or £25 with a copy of OK!.

Says McGowan:

“I am from south London and I loved Jade. The last months of her life were in the public eye, except the moments of her death. As an artist, this is my tribute to Jade.”

Old Mr Anorak has invited students at his art school – Nudes – to create still life tributes to Jade. Notable creation include:

o-Hell! – A burning pile of OK! magazines

****! Everyone One I’ve Every Sworn At – a collection of swear words written on a Asda carrier bag

Being – A half pig pickled in a jar of vinegar

The Lights Going Off – an empty room with the lights off.

Death – A plastic doll giving a gonk a blow job

Liver – A man dressed a Max Clifford walking around a art gallery inviting the raped Sabine women to tell all

All models made from dough…
