Pauline Amos 08 Jul 09

The artist whose body is her canvas

Pauline Amos is an artist who is fascinated by putting herself in her work, literally. She’s well known for using her naked body as a canvas, a canvas that she sometimes asks other people to paint. You too could become part of her art-work.  She’s staging an exhibition in London later this week and will be filming and photographing visitors’ reactions to her body. She joins Jenni to discuss her work, and the small matter of a £1.3 million price tag she (notoriously) attached to one of her paintings.
"ALL THOU ART'' takes place on 9 July at 'Ghost Farringdon', London.
