international / arts and media / news report Thursday June 16, 2011 19:39 by Oswald Bastable   image 1 image
Introducing a new cultural website.

After the death of England’s best-loved alcoholic gambling bigot, the queen mother, the Daily Mail rather ludicrously suggested that the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square should be given over permanently to a statue of her. The Guardian impishly proposed the potential responses of contemporary artists to the challenge. For Antony Gormley, we got ‘the angel of the south’: a steel sculpture of an old lady, complete with cane, handbag, absurd hat and enormous aeroplane wings.

This is how one pictures the angel of contemporary culture. Her eyes stare at hordes of tourists, bemused consumers of Britain’s heritage industry. Her existence is a cheap trick, a grandiose prosthesis grafted onto a piece of idiotic kitsch. Nobody any more is quite sure if she is a serious endeavour or a mischievous joke; the work of a dedicated artisan or of an industry. Unlike Benjamin’s angel,* she does not want to stay behind but to take flight from this shabby existence. Unfortunately, she is riveted to the plinth. These rivets are what we call capitalism.
