Biennale Tosh

Why do we leave it up to the Arts Council, which knows nothing about visual art, to select the purported artist to represent Britain at the Venice Biennale? Its choice for 2013 is Jeremy Deller, infamous for his bouncy Stonehenge called Sacrilege (2012). I'm not sure where the sacrilege comes in, maybe claiming this bouncy inflatable is a work of art. Fun for kiddies big and small certainly, but art? Since 1938 the Arts Council has been commissioning embarrassing tosh for the Biennale (CLICK). It is high time we found a judging panel that knows something about art.

Absolutely. Waste of money too.
