Early on in the interview, they talk about surrendering of control, and I immediately thought of powerplay and BDSM practice. And then at the end of it, they actually GO THERE in the conversation.

Very interesting conversation overall! Thanks for posting!

I would don a full-body plaster cast for Brian Eno in a heartbeat.

Yes to this ...

GP: Yeah – that’s why I have the rubbish dump test. When I was at college, one of the tutors used to say, “Oh, that won’t pass the rubbish dump test,” which is, if you throw your artwork on a rubbish dump, would people, members of the public, pick it up, thinking it was an artwork? It’s quite a cruel test but, you know . . .

Note To Self: next time somebody asks you who (living or dead) would you most like to have for dinner, the answer is Brian Eno.

I've seriously, never read/heard/seen an uninteresting discussion involving this guy

and Grayson Perry would be welcome, too, but he'd have to bring some wine.

Every paragraph of that was goddamn perfect.

Eno is one of the greatest artists of our time, precisely BECAUSE he's so curious and so willing to pursue all his interests as much as he is. And I don't know Perry, but he seems to be pretty excellent as well.

Yeah, and the Brian Eno / David Byrne album from a few years ago was completely brilliant. Talk about an artistic coupling that was meant to be.

Wasn't really aware of Grayson Perry but his Reith Lectures on the BBC have been great. Especially loved episode 3 - "Nice Rebellion! Welcome in!". People not in the UK may struggle to listen but there is a transcript of each one. Recommended for those who think about art and all that.

> GP The YBAs did to a certain extent rehash the work of that late-Sixties, early-Seventies period, but what they did on top of it was make it very appealing, very sensual, and sort of covetable. They put it through an advertising agency, almost.

Heh. This seems true in itself, but I wonder how much of a dig on Saatchi was intended by phrasing it this way.

@ Mr Ed - here's my FPP on the Grayson Perry Reith Lectures

I don't know what it is, but something about this interview makes it hard for me to take Grayson Perry that seriously.

That last bit about religion formalizing kink is not going to be popular but damn, am I glad that someone else thinks that.

@ Dan Call - cheers for that Dan!

I originally read this as Brian Eno and Gaylord Perry.
