that's an interesting photo

I cannot believe that we are giving money away to persons other than UK artists for such nonsense. It just upsets me when I am working really hard to try and make ends meet, and am faced with rubbish that seems to provoke some kind of interest. I have no idea why people like that sort of thing!

Sorry if I misread the advert... the residency/award might have been given by a different country... gosh am I working with too much white spirit!!!

would like to apply how do i go about it
