What does the perfect work of art look like? Is it a painting, or a sculpture? Is it more blue than purple, by Rodin or Picasso? Does it have a cat in it, or feature a woman wearing an ornate piece of jewellery?
One thing is for sure, to find the perfect work of art you need to select a panel of eight people and an enthusiastic chairperson to filter out dozens of artworks until just one – the perfect one – is left standing.
It’s a ludicrous task of course. A waste of time. A non-entity. All done simply to highlight the fact that there is no such thing as the perfect work of art. But with the National Art Pass everybody can find something they adore.
The film was directed by Fred Rowson and production company was Colonel Blimp. It launches online and in cinemas from September 26th.
