Final insult; You Say Email:letters@liverpoolecho.co.uk.



ON FRIDAY I went to the Tate to speak with the person responsible for the exhibition of a person vomiting, and told him of my disgust. He and the Tate press officer informed me that it is part of an exhibition that thrills them, but in itself was a work of art.

I pressed both these seemingly intelligent people how by any stretch of the imagination a video of someone vomiting could be a work of art.

The final insult, it seems to me, is that these two can dictate what they consider to be art, and foist it on us whether or not we are disgusted by it.
