Ugly art

A work was recently removed from display from a Shanghai gallery, it was a video installation created by the artist Song Ta. The work was called “Ugly and Uglier”. It featured 5000 video clips of different women going about their daily business at a university. They were ranked as to how attractive he found them. In his defence he said he was entitled to tell the truth. There was a public backlash and the gallery was forced to reassess the work and take it down.  You can read more about the story on this Artnet article

A Woman Artist Zin Yutong has created a work in response. Called a guide to identifying vegetables. In the artwork she ranks artist’s penises scoring them out of 100 and assigning them a vegetable to represent the artists manhood.  Anything below 50 was considered a poor score. She presented the work by showing a picture of the artists work alongside a picture of the  vegetable. You can learn more about this on the Vice Website

    loved the remix too.
    i have the journal book of kurt cobain. i will have to dig it out and check if the styles of that sketch is consistent.
    In Bath there used to be a street artist with very naive crayon drawings laid out on the floor. all weathers. soaking bits of sugar paper and drawings of pink rabbits and pints of beer. One of his works was shown in the tate modern. I had one i swapped with him for a photo. I’ve lost the picture i had off him. anyways..what does this matter…dont know. as hard as i might try to do a very naive drawing in his style i would never be able to replicate it. not sure the same could be said for the original K.C sketch.

    1. Thanks for the comment, would be interested to hear if the style is in keeping in your Kurbain Book. Love the naive art style of drawing, sometimes it communicates a lot more than many photo realist artworks. If you do any naive style drawing works you should email us, would be interested in seeing it. Thanks for your support, keep in touch. 🙂
