Diana death re-enactment with 'assassin' Philip

Art eventist Mark McGowan is to re-enact the death of Diana, Princess of Wales at a prestigious central London venue.

McGowan tells me: "It's a theatrical art performance and there will be giant painted backdrops of Paris, including the Eiffel Tower a man on a bike with some onions, lots of Citro├źn cars etc, a massive tunnel made with an armiture and some black plastic bags, a makeshift car/limo with Di, Dodi and Henry Paul all played by actors with cardboard boxes on their heads with photographs of the characters which has a really strange effect, some real paparazzi, a crash, paramedics and above the tunnel a big image of Prince Philip with the word ASSASSIN scrawled underneath.

"The performance is aimed at unearthing some of the mysteries surrounding the tragic death and will be a serious look into the role played by the royal family and in particular Prince Philip. Tickets will be available soon."

What happened to McGowan's last stunt - setting himself alight in Parliament Square? Did he chicken out? Or was he advised to abandon his latest futile gesture on the advice of the fire service?

I do hope this "art performance" is a joke...because if he is serious, I will fly to London to assist Diana's sons in kicking this guy's ass...that is NOT art...that is crue...

Perhaps McGowan and Steph should get together for an art performance - outside the Old Vic?

Yes, OUTSIDE would be their right place, indeed. Genuine art is INSIDE, isn't it?

If so, your first negative appreciation of McGowan's 'art' is asinine too... Try to be a little consitent, for once. :->

your statement has no validity, I have studied many forms of art. Performance art is not what McGowan was trying to portray by hurting innocent people...that is uncalled for and NOT ART..and that's my opinion; art isn't supposed to be cruel and hurt the offspring of Diana's.. There is no art in enacting any hurtful death,(possibly murder) of their high profile, loving and magnificent mother! That's where I take a stand..!
