How much Pin could a Pinchuk Chuck if a Pinchuk could Chuck Pin?

Hello and welcome back. Did you enjoy your Christmas and New Year? Good.
We spent ours out of the country, in a place where there was no art (no, not Flowers East), so forgive the lack of anything.

First up, is news of Victor Pinchuk’s ‘Future Generation Art Prize’. Despite the promise to “discover, recognize and provide long-term support to a future generation of artists”, we can’t help but feel that in order to support a ‘generation’ of artists, perhaps that money is more widely distributed in chunks to more winners? CoS envisages just one winner sashaying around Kiev dressed head to toe in Dior ‘omme.
It seems 20 artists will be chosen by a selection committee selected by a jury, to then be judged by the jury, despite the fact they were selected by the committee which was initially selected by the jury. Clear? Good.

Here’s the winner of Pinchuk’s Ukrainian prize. This picture doesn’t look like a scene from a satirical tv art comedy at all…

and here’s his winning work:

We can’t wait to see who wins the big prize.
