How can the wops afford this?

Don’t say I never do arts posts…but I am wondering how the wops can afford this, they are flat broke and will probably go on the bludge expecting us to pay for their expensive art exhibition.

A Dunedin artist has been invited to show his work at one of the world’s most prestigious art exhibitions.

Dunedin School of Art senior sculpture lecturer Scott Eady will travel to Italy in May to install his work “Personal Structures” at the Venice Biennale 2013.

“It was very unexpected and, of course, very exciting news. I am a little overwhelmed,” Mr Eady said yesterday. 

His installation will feature a series of small bronze sculptures at the Palazzo Bembo, as part of the official collateral events at the biennale.

“It’s going to be seven small, painted, bronze sculptures in a courtyard. They look like colourful blobs of chewing gum, which have been spat out in a courtyard, basically. The courtyard is very brown and devoid of colour.”

The invitation was extended to Mr Eady’s art dealer, RH Gallery, by Venice Biennale director Massimiliano Gioni after his “100 Bikes Project Gwangju” appeared in the Gwangju Biennale in South Korea last year.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
