(Just too much) Realism in art

There were (ever so slightly) red faces all round earlier this week at the non-profit John Jones Project Space in North London when police were called to investigate a possible break-in at the gallery. On discovering a deathly white, scarily stiff body at the far end of the room, the key holding company understandably alerted the boys in blue. Project Space managers were even called with the macabre news that a corpse had been found coiled up in the corner. But fear not—the police later telephoned to say that the dead man was, in fact, not really a man after all. The grisly find turned out to be a striking sculptural piece by RCA graduate Adam James which forms part of the current "Manderley" exhibition (one word: phew).
