George the Poet, RIBA Gold Medallists, Review of Still Life

George the Poet is a 24 year old rapper, poet and Cambridge graduate who has been nominated for the BBC's Sound of 2015 poll and the BRITs' Critic's Choice Award. He tells John about Search Party, his debut poetry collection and how he hopes it can help inspire other young people. Architects Sheila O'Donnell and John Tuomey, the Dublin based husband and wife team who have been nominated for the Stirling Prize a record five times, discuss winning the Royal Gold Medal for Architecture, which is given to recognise a significant contribution to architecture. They talk about why they have chosen to focus on cultural buildings, including theatres and galleries, and what being a couple brings to their work life. On the day two bronze sculptures are being attributed to Michelangelo, John talks to the artist's biographer Martin Gayford about the possibility of him being their creator, given the amount of work he was contracted to produce at the time the sculptures were made. And we ask who might have commissioned them - someone, clearly, with a lot of clout. Still Life is a new low budget British film about a council case worker who looks for the relatives of those found dead and alone, and arranges their funerals. Starring Eddie Marsan and Joanne Froggatt, the film won best Director at the Venice Film Festival. Viv Groskop reviews.…read more
