Anyone else know anything more about the FREE exhibition of work by young British artists, Bloc, being promoted by Bowieart at the County Hall Gallery (the space downstairs next to the Dali Universe show, NOT the Saatchi Gallery. [requires Shockwave]

First I'd heard about it was a story in today's throwaway Standard.

It opens to the public on Thursday

Will there be celebrities sighted at County Hall whichever night this week is the private view?

The first show will include works by 16 young artists including Doug Fishbone, famous for
installing 30,000 bananas in Trafalgar Square and Eleonora Aguiari who wrapped a statue of
Lord Napier in red tape.

Now what crackerjack work of art can anyone here come up with?
I was thinking of covering the gates of Downing Street in brussel sprouts.

Would that be an anti- or pro-European message monsieur Phoneé?

Apparently there was no symbolism of bureaucracy intended - Ms Aguiari (an Italian) didn't have any understanding of the idiomatic meaning of "red tape"
