God bless Art Sleuth’s wonderful friend Maya Shamji for her most excellent performance on the plinth. If anything Antony Gormley has revealed that most Brits have little imagination. Reading a book or taking photographs of tourists? Surely there is more you can do in the sole hour of your life you have on this earth as a piece of live art?
I’m sure Nelson would agree.
But we cannot fault Maya on her art in action! She got over one thousand blue, pink and orange glow sticks to dangle in chains off the plinth in an hour! More importantly she got the crowd going. People were making pretty necklaces out of the fallen sticks, there was singing and perhaps a little dancing. We love you Maya!
