English Magic

To add insult to injury on its waste of money at the Venice Biennale, the British Council in partnership with the Koestler Trust has taken 8 ex-offenders to the show. They are all training for a career in art (CLICK). What on earth they'll learn about art at the Venice Biennale is beyond me. How to con rich punters into buying tripe? At least Turner Prize-winner Jeremy Deller included representational murals in the British Pavilion; but his English Magic is a self-indulgent statement of his own obsessions. Shown is his A Good Day For Cyclists (2013) depicting a giant hen harrier snatching a range rover in its talons (CLICK). The money wasted on his obsessions could have gone to our museum guards.
