Modern art as rubbish

The Guardian reports that:
Artist Michael Landy, who once destroyed all his possessions in an act of creative destruction, has transformed the South London Gallery into a giant dustbin for art. Describing the work, simply called Art Bin, as ‘about failure’, Landy is inviting members of the public to bring their own artistic failures along to the gallery from 29 January, where their worthlessness will be assessed.

Damien Hirst, Gillian Wearing, Tracey Emin and Mark Titchner have already contributed, offering sculptures, paintings and prints.
