All packed and ready to go...
Wilson is picked up in a private boat which is very chi chi...tra la la
Wilson visits Murano where he meets the formidable Adriano Berengo, an important "curatore" with an important glass studio (and three wives Wilson discovered). Curatores look like this..
This is GLASS ART though it looks and smells like fish to Wilson..
WIlson immediately fell in love with Tracey Emin’s cat.
He also learned about Venetian fashion..
ART people actually dress like this...when not wearing black.
Wilson LOVES art now...
WILSON decided to sacrifice himself in the name of 'glass art".
How do I look in blue?
He began to explore industrial waste possibilities (actually he loves any kind of skip, trash can, rubbish bin, leftover food on sidewalks, under sofas..in other people's picnics.
With the help of a great Master Glass Blower (don’t mess with them.. they can lift cars with one hand) Wilson began to create GLASS ART….p.s. real art is actually made by people who don't wear black and have no idea that the White Cube is a gallery.
Wilson poses for autographs. Lesson one in art: first become famous, then make something.
Wilson thought Murano is a swell sort of place
It’s even a bit, you know, phallic..
WILSON went to Venice to mingle with all the nobby artebrities, of which he is now one. They pretend they are looking at art but really they are looking at each other..
Again on a PRIVATO boat car (after all, he is a famous glass artist now, as well as a DOGEBRITY).
The Venice Biennale and certainly Ron Arad already know all about WILSON!
WIlson relaxing..(no art was hurt in this broadcast).
Life is a kind of cage, an eternal trap, a cycle of boxed in-ess… Wilson learnt how to speak art...
Wilson (like Leonardo DiCaprio) is also a master of disguise.
That’s LOVE. He came along too..
LOVE much appreciated those NOT VITAL (eh??that's right) snowballs, all 700 of them… We counted to make sure none had gone missing.
Wilson plans to be joined by 699 other Wilsons ..next year
Meanwhile, he ponders the infinity and meaninglessness of repetition and oblivion spiralling towards death and destruction. Actually the NOT VITAL installation rather reminded him of a bowling alley..
Meanwhile LOVE conquered the pretty attendant in the matching outfit
Love is EVERYWHERE..
Wilson meanwhile got into one of his usual scrapes…
Marc Quinn’s inflatable sculpture didn’t get nearly as much attention as WILSON!
LOVE inflating...(a bit like artist's egos really).
Land of tourists
Sometimes even LOVE is not enough...
Wilson found time to pose for tourists (it's hard being a Dogebrity AND an Artebrity).
But Wilson LOVES everyone...
FYI, the movie LOVE opens soon, starring Wilson of course....
WIlson jumped on a plane (privato) and headed home
Wilson, the postcard, is already on sale (limited edition of course).
P.s. Don't bother trying to reach Wilson for commissions. He is an 'artiste' now..
Feel free to beg though (Wilson's been known to do that..)
