Hamish Keith reaches for a rare moment of satire in his otherwise humourless TVNZ art doco The Big Picture, when he attempts to put the boot into conceptual art. For those of you who missed it, Keith posing as an artist, walks in, blows up a balloon, lets it fly into the air and walks out. Just to make sure we understood that Keith thinks that conceptual art is really, really stupid, the sound of a braying donkey has been added as a sound track. Get it?
