You don't understand "art" do you?

It is art because someone says it is.... once you get good at it, you can say your own work is "art" (ie unmade beds and cows in fish tanks)... if you don't get it you are a uncultured barbarian.

Or something.

Best thing to happen to this tat is someone torching it again.

BBC report on tracy emins upset about people laughing at "modern art" being destroyed in a fire.

Artist Tracey Emin has condemned people who "sniggered" at contemporary art and laughed when pieces of her work were destroyed by a fire in a warehouse.

Speaking on BBC Breakfast with Frost, she said she was not upset at the loss, but at the British public's reaction.

"The majority of the British public have no regard or no respect to what me and my peers do, to the point that they laugh at a disaster like a fire.

"We really don't need to laugh at the culture in our own country," she said.

...

Ms Emin, 41, said the negative reaction came from people who either "don't like contemporary art or aren't educated about it".
Nope, I am not educated in modern art, nor do I want to be. Unmade beds, tents with the names of sexual partners, chainsawed cows and embalmed sharks.... just don't do it for me. It isn't art.

Bu .. bu .. but, Surely laughing at it is simply modern performance art??

One simply has to see it in the context of the life experience of the laughers and the laughees, Darling!

Yep the laughter was merely the public showing how hopeless life is and that all we can do in the face of disaster is laugh.... and we laugh in the face of danger....

and when millions of pounds worth of tat goes up in smoke.

Jesus she's full of herself aint she. Tracy Emin Web site

i really like the piece entitled " my flange is wet with fear" it would have to fear because it wont be man fat for free love. That tent she embroidered with the names of all the blokes she slept with must have been bloody small or it was bit writing. Either way to sleep with her it must have cost her a small fortune.

You want to see The Rebel with Tony Hancock. He plays a guy totally without talent who is revered by the Paris art world because they think he sculpted a masterpiece. Every bit of carp he produces is heralded as a masterpiece by the gullible art world.

Quite possibly the gayest post in Arrse history. Why don't you stick to your Erasure records and interior design and leave the rest of us to fantasise about the delectable Tracy?

She has a "piece" called "my cnut is wet with fear" which consisted of a pile of used tampons. Lovely.

The work itself is not as interesting as the effect it has
upon the public. Our prurient juices might flow, arousing
entanglements of distance, desire and voyeurism.
We might dismiss it outright, incredulous that such a
base and brazen display gets attention as Art. We might
see the work as the necessary weapon of an heroic
victim, the bloodied sword of a warrior in the
sex and gender wars. We might stand aside
as it incites the critics to criticize and the media
to mediate, thereby establishing a market value
for itself. Finally, the idea of meeting
her at a party might make us nervous.
Or we could just call it a fcuking health hazard that should be placed in to a bio bin and torched, followed by ms emin getting her arrse in their with marigolds and domestos.

She also has one called "Every Part of Me's bleeding"....

The thing that i cant get my head round is she seems to think that everybody else should be falling over themselves to congratulate her on this work and she doesn't understand why we laugh and call it sh1t.

Sorry to quote myself... but my bold.
