Too much dirt
For our interpretive work we have looked at The Painting of Lady Denham and the sculpture 'Kiss' by Marc Quinn. We explored the idea that beauty is sometimes found within and that you shouldn't take things at face value. We thought about stereotypes, expectations and preconceptions and how these things affect our ability to make judgements. The idea for our interpretive work was to buy an old battered car from a scrap yard and spray paint the engine with gold paint and upholster the seats inside with gold silk. The problem with this is that the curators probably won't be very happy with us putting a dirty, germ-ridden car alongside lots of valuable artworks. We therefore need to think of another everyday object which has a clear outside and inside and one which would be possible to customise with gold paint and fabric. Any suggestions would be gratefully received.
