I managed to catch half an hour of the live streaming on Sky Arts tonight. Presented as usual by Clive Anderson, the guest commentator was Dan Cruickshank. His top 5 were Nicholas Cornwall who spent his hour putting sticking written names of people around the plinth: a kind reminder not to forget them perhaps?
Hiker Celia Clayton built a dry-stone wall. Kate Davis slept in a sleeping bag (by choice) therefore subtly drawing attention to the plight of the many homeless people who have no choice (and half the time, no sleeping bag). Paul Crofts made a man out of mirrors………….. (?) and Cruickshank’s top pick was Amy Wineslinger (?) who started out looking like a draped statue, before stripping and turning into what looked like an exhibit from Professor Gunther Von Hagens ‘Body Worlds’ exhibition! I wrote a post about him HERE. Ms Wineslinger had painted her body to look like she had been plastinated – Great fun lol!
