KISS THE BEAN for Anish’s birthday
Join me & friends for a participatory art performance to celebrate Anish’s 64th birthday.
I watched the Grinch over Christmas and I realized that a little bit of love can go a long way in melting even the blackest of hearts.
Please wear your pinkest lipstick and kiss the bean.
If you really want to mix some vaseline with the Pinkest Pink and that will work too. (you can get pinkest pink from CultureHustle.com)
it takes a lot to make someone sue China for making a bootleg bean. news.artnet.com/art-world/anish-kapoor-sues-china-bean-sculpture-324704
It takes a lot to be so money hungry that you agree for some weird copyright deal to stop people taking photos in the park boingboing.net/2005/05/27/chicagos-bean-sculpt.html
It takes even more for them to go to steal the light and colour from their neighbors in South London. change.org/p/kieron-williams-stop-anish-kapoor-taking-away-our-light-and-colour
It takes still more for them to get the sole rights to a super black (an stop any other artist using it) just to make $100,000 dollar wristwatches. hodinkee.com/articles/mct-vantablack-hands-on
But it takes things to a whole other level to illegally obtain another artist's pink without asking, not say sorry or give them their £3.99 back. wmagazine.com/story/anish-kapoor-stuart-semple-blackest-black
Sometimes people act like rotters because they aren’t getting enough love. And I know we can fix that… together!
So to celebrate Anish’s 64th birthday we are going to show him ALL the love.
See you there! Love Stuart x
