Boogie Woogie is a book and now a film. I dont quite know how to describe it. In some ways its maybe a satire of the world of art, or maybe just an exploration of it, but ridiculised. I saw it at Edinburgh film festival and it really got me thinking about our relationship to art, as artists, buyers, dealers, outsiders, whatever; and where it features in our list of priorities. What is art to me?? its definitely not something to buy and sell, its something for eveyone. It should be a part of life, a constant source of inspiration and debate. I think everyone should be an artist, and live with art, not just in their homes but in their lives. this is what i think.
