London Dada social commentary work to round off the Queen’s diamond jubilee year of 2012.
Concrete work inspired by the quote from the music legend & eminently sane Frank Zappa;
” Until you change yourselves from subjects to citizens, you’re always going to be eating shit”
” Monarch and subject”
– every piece of oppressive govt. legislation gets guaranteed royal assent ( the bejewelled nod ).
” We Only Have Eyes for Ewe, Maam ”
This artwork is refined and varnished and with cutout eye socket photographs.
Includes 12″ stainless steel tube support and placed within a glass display case.
One worldwide; £14,000
” Art, for us, is not an end in itself, but an opportunity to express true perception and criticism of the times in which we live” – Hugo Ball, founder of Dada, 1916

Re-post from last year. Ideal Christmas day inbox e-card for those heavily reliant on making merry with meat at yuletide. The grim meathook reality at the moment for millions of battery birds and factory-farmed animals… is that you must die to be eaten in celebration of the birth of someone who advocated ” Thou shalt not kill”
London Dada says Go Nut Roast this Christmas – you know it makes at least bowel cancer-avoidance sense.
In a callous and uncivilized society the weak & the innocent have few rights.

” No words, could ever describe the hate I feel for these men…who sacrifice life for no ideal – just the id.”
