Is Contemporary Art Rubbish?

 

Here Gavin gives us the lowdown on the meaning behind his artwork 'Transubstantiation'. While providing a humorous commentary on consumerism, he likens Skips crisps to the little pieces of bread you get in church that represent Jesus. The meaning of the word 'transubstantiation' is exactly that, the conversion of substance to embody the being of Christ at the consecration.

Skip Gallery was created by co-founders and creative partners, Catherine Borowski and Lee Baker, two London-based artists who take the mundane and every day and try to re-imagine them in new situations.
