THE BIENNALE OF SYDNEY 2: COMMUNIST CORPSES

One of the highlights (there are quite a few actually) of the Sydney Biennale is a room of dead and dying communist leaders by Shen Shaomin (China). The UK paparazzi (a.k.a Suzanne Treister) who have a tendency to be very thorough caught this anonymous woman below sneaking a kiss from Fidel Castro and photographing herself caught red handed. Wild … weird! Suzy also photographed three fine chaps Marcus Coates (difficult to recognise without an animal on his head), Gordon Knox and David Broker looking rather awkward at Artspace. Truth is, however, … they’re not.
