RA Exhibit Smashed!

I.C. - Four Sculptures by Tatiana Echeverri Fernandez surrounding Tracey Emin's Cowgirl Boots (2008)Last Saturday afternoon, a clumsy visitor to the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition 2008 fell into a cordoned-off area containing these ceramic sculptures by Costa Rican artist Tatiana Echeverri Fernandez, completely smashing the 9ft tall one entitled Christina, worth £6000. Oh, hard cheese. I must admit I've seen more exciting bedposts. This smashing news reached the BBC yesterday (only three days to travel across London: the wonders of modern technology). Coxsoft Art News may be even later bringing you this story, but here you get a unique pre-crash graphic. Scoop! The cowgirl boots in the centre of the display belong to Tracey Emin. (If she calls them art, they are art.)

That's the ticket. Sir Nick would love it.

Have you seen my posts on "Tracey Emin's Knickers"? Paste the quote without the quote marks into the Blogger search box to find two howlers from Stuckism.

Some patrons thought the loud crash and scattering pieces were actually part of the show.

A quote from the other side of the pond.

Speaks volumes!
