Last friday evening to fascinating Famous Bodies talk at the British Museum, to coincide with the BM’s Treasures of Heaven exhibition. Marina Warner, Madeleine Bunting and Grayson Perry discussed the fetishisation of celebrity. Think MW’s pic of a packet of Elvis’s sweat probably outdid my Elvis’s hair badge. Seem to have missed Jesus’s umbilical cord reliquary when I visited the exhibition some weeks ago. Grayson Perry witty as usual but looking a bit wan under his Claire make-up. Apparently he’s just had kidney stones – perhaps he could display them? Very a propos.
