the annual turner prize for art went to a transvestite potter who makes vases depicting social ills like pedophilia and child abuse. here he is as “claire”. nothing new, i guess, for the contemporary art world that likes shock over substance. these vases, though, are quite pretty if you don’t look too closely at some of the disturbing scenes. personally, i liked the wild shit of the chapman brothers. i’m going to check the nominees out when i go down there in a couple of weeks.
