Vauxhall Thingy

Yesterday morning, bright and early before the rain set in for the day, young British artist Alex Chinneck unveiled his installation thingy for Vauxhall Motors entitled Pick yourself up and pull yourself together (2015). It's an upside-down new Vauxhall Corsa suspended from 15 metres of arching tarmac peeled back from Hungerford Car Park, Southbank Centre. It will hang there until 25 February (CLICK). I must admit it's eye-catching, but is it really art? Alex belongs to the Royal British Society of Sculptors. So I suppose that makes it official. It is indeed art, simply not my kind of art. Call me old-fashioned if you like.
