Banksy Defaced statue of a Priest is a new addition to The Walker Art Gallery collection.
The renowned graffiti artist has sawn off the face of an 18th Century replica stone bust and glued on a selection of bathroom tiles. The resulting ‘pixellated’ portrait is entitled ‘Cardinal Sin’ and is believed to be a comment on the abuse scandal in the Church and its subsequent cover- up.

See some Christian Boltanski’s pictures in Monumenta 2010. I liked this odd exhibition but like always… so far, so close. January 1st, 2010, my soon to be family in law had breakfast with Christian Boltanski and Annette Messager. These are artists that I will love to meet … but no luck. I’ll tell you the story. My future parents in law run a beautiful bed & breakfast (La Maison du Cordon) in a small town in Burgundy (Aignay-le-Duc) where a very important french artist lives (Bertand Lavier) … so far this reads like an art fairy tale and you will tell me it is not possible… but yes, they came to spend new year’s eve with Lavier and so they slept in my parents in law’s B&B. I think next New Year’s eve I will spend it in Burgundy … just in case.
