Kate Walters responds to Richard Parry’s brief “Biennale announces hypnotists to be employed as invigilators. Deeper experience promised.”
I had to keep returning to the Sarah Lucas show to remind myself how awful it was. I asked one of the invigilators what she thought of the show. She made sure no one was looking when she said most people come in, and within a few minutes they are on their way out. No hypnotists would be required in the Japan Pavilion which is a sea of red threads describing arcs, caves or wombs. Deeper experiences guaranteed here, no cynicism what a relief!
