Turner Prize Streak 2011 - 5th December 2011
"Mark Roberts turns streaking into an art form - Turner Style!"
Mark kindly recalls the whole story as follows:
To lead up to the Turner event, I went to the Tate in London the week before, where I walked around in my now famous tutu, "studying" the paintings, dancing in between the masterpieces.
The bemused but somewhat curious security guards followed me at arms length which was itself quite surreal.
As I danced and "studied", I was asked by a group of ladies: "Are you an exhibit?" to which I replied "I am what you wish me to be, my dear!" and promptly pirouetted away.
On leaving the site, I was approached by four security guards who asked, "Sir, the next time you visit, could you please dress appropriately and wear a top?".
I kid you not!
On arriving at The Baltic Mill Exhibition Centre in Newcastle for the Turner Prize, myself and Stuart, my friend and accomplice for the evening, adopted the guise of German artists, in respect of the creator of the forthcoming new art form, and mused over the shape of potatoes whilst mingling with the critics.
Here is a question for those who ponder art:
"If Mark, our hero, and Turner end up in court, could the court case in itself be classed as art where art plays against art. It's levels upon levels!"
