Jade Goody's Last Days Recreated by Mark McGowan

Oh my! This 'modern art' play recreates the scenes from Jade Goody's deathbed—this is an incredibly controversial creative work.

The artist was Mark McGowan, whose costume design consisted of the 'characters' wearing boxes over their heads with images of Jade, Jack and so forth.

This 'play' can be seen in the Guy Hilton Gallery in East London. Visitors wishing to see the art are brought down in small groups to view it.

Implications - Personally, I think this is too controversial for my tastes, but I'm not one to stand in the way of people expressing themselves. Did this piece by Mark McGowan go too far? Perhaps, but I think it all depends on people's personal tastes.
