RA Exhibit Smashed!
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.)
