ANDREAS KRONTHALER and VIVIENNE WESTWOOD


Andreas and Vivienne are great cyclists and are lovers of classical music. They can often be seen supporting the London Symphony Orchestra at the Barbican. Looking between a moth and Marie-Antoinette, Viviene looks horrified by less intelligent human beings. You want her to notice you but she never does, you want to please her. Andreas is charming and handsome in every way.
I sat with Tim Noble and Sue Webster, the couple behind the shadow installations, made of rubbish. I first met Tim and Sue with Isabella Blow. They came to stay with me in the South of France. They made art pieces out of toys in the swimming pool, as if they were useable utensils. Fun, dangerous and different they are alive.
Mat Collishaw, Polly Morgan, Tracey and Paul Fryer came to stay and painted a shirt for me..It is the best present I have ever been given. Covered with cartoons of helicopters, Princess Diana, a cup, skulls, drawn carefully all over it, the piece is sensational.
