    Shaken not Stirred
    c. Art Axis 2015

    Night view inside the bar / lounge area of the Hayward Gallery from the outside raised walkway,
    past a neon-embellished cement mixer languishing on a wide exterior ledge.

    Comment on the largely tawdry, intellectually pretentious and uninspiring shows Hayward South Bank choose to exhibit,
    year in year out.
    The South Bank: where Chinese dissidents flourish while artists critical of the UK establishment status quo in any way
    get the cold shoulder.

    and thereby democratizing art, bringing it within the reach of everyone.

    artist Michael St.Mark in 2012  )
