Accidental Curator

entry picture

Liverpool Biennial TATE is the largest festival of contemporary visual art in the UK.

 

Children's coats were dumped

in a pile on the floor

so I lifted them up

to some hooks on a door.

When I came back

to my lasting surprise

a crowd was now gathering

to award me first prize.

Two performance artists, Yuan Chai and Jian Jun Xi, jumped on the bed with bare torsos to improve the work, which they thought had not gone far enough. They called their performance Two Naked Men Jump into Tracey's Bed. Sold for £2.5 million

Like SM, I always like the chance to smile - and even better when it's unexpected.
If you'd dragged in an unmade bed to put them on, you'd be famous!

I love to smile, and this did the job. Perfect
