Zero-G Daub Sells

Back in July I took the Mickey out of Nasser Azam's daft Life in Space project (before CLICK and after CLICK) during which he completed Homage to Francis Bacon: Triptych I in zero gravity. It's difficult to believe, but some idiot bought this rubbish for £223,000 ($332,500) at a New York auction. It fetched well over its estimate on a day when half the works on offer remained unsold or were withdrawn. It proves yet again that artistic talent means nothing to rich punters; it's gimmicks that sell! You can see Triptych II - another zero-G effort - and more of Azam's tosh at County Hall in London.
