“In the top five talks of all time – in fact it’s number one”, Gregor Muir, Executive Director of the ICA.
“Tonight’s ‘talk’ took the anticipated format and threw it back into the crowd. Much to the delight of many, but much to the disgust of others – two of whom were women in scarves and pearls told me in the Ladies’ afterwards that they considered the evening an “insult to their intellect”. The evening reached a climax of mixed pleasure, frustration and confusion when Lucas walked out saying “I’m going for a wee” which resulted in many people leaving. West shrugged and said to the audience “money back again”, SLASHSTROKE magazine.
“I was for a time with a friend in the woods …it was much too greenish”, Franz West.
“I’m sorry but we can’t hear what you are saying, the music is too loud”, Francesco the Italian,
“…you came here for instruction…? …you said it! …I thought you just wanted to see us have a talk, …to really talk, and listen to some music!”, Sarah Lucas.
“It’s not education, it’s loading”, Franz West.
“Energy dairies”, Franz West.
“…you mean like cows??”, Sarah Lucas.
“Do some great packaging and you’ll sell shit loads”, Damien Hirst.
