A 72-year-old grandmother could stoke the "shock art" debate by contributing knitted ladies' underwear in the shape of genitalia to an exhibition.
Mary Gee's knitted underwear
Mary Gee's colourful creations form part of the Will and Testament exhibition in London, where the age of the artist ranges from 72 to 95.
The show, supported by Help the Aged, aims to uncover a Tracey Emin or Damien Hirst of the older generation.
The exhibition at the Hames Levack gallery in Soho opens on 13 June.
Other exhibits include a portrait of nightclub owner Peter Stringfellow, painted by 83-year-old Colin Duffield from Sheffield, while work by a World War II veteran with the Royal Fusiliers will also be displayed.
Sid Simmons, a 74-year-old blind man, will also show off his talent, paintings of scenes of his youth from memory.
"Their work will change the way you look at
your grandmother and grandfather," said a spokesman for PlayStation, which is backing the project.
Help The Aged national events manager Richard Johnson said: "Will and Testament
will shorten the division between art and age and hopefully act as a catalyst to
change society's perception of age."
Budding older artists were invited to submit their work for the exhibition regardless of age or experience, using any medium.
