Big Guns…

This from Art Newspaper…

Anita goes nuclear on her Finnish retreat
Published online 27 Jul 11
The London-based energetic art patronne and collector Anita Zabludowicz is expanding her empire with plans to open an “art park” on the remote island of Sarvisalo one hour east of Helsinki. Zabludowicz and her Finnish husband Poju will show works from their contemporary collection on the eleven sq. mile chunk of land, commissioning artists James Ireland and Richard Woods to create public art for this Finnish idyll. But the most intriguing project taking shape on Sarvisalo must be the humongous concrete nuclear bunker conceived by Matthew Day Jackon, star of Hauser & Wirth’s current London show (Savile Row, until 30 July). This apocalyptic art makes us think, however, that Anita knows something about world events that we don’t…

Well, her father in-law is an arms dealer so maybe she’s getting some info straight from the horses mouth? Batten down the hatches everyone, and build your own art bunker… I want Anish Mittal to make mine!

    It always makes me laugh when you read about the Tate-BP protests, and this is sitting on their doorstep. Goes to show how dumb both sides of that coin is.

    Let me guess the Art Newspaper puff was by Louisa ‘super sexy art money’ Buck whose dad just happened to run the British Army or some war machine like that. Spooky.
