The Guy Hilton Gallery presents:
The re-enactment of the Conception of Prince William
Mark McGowan

In an extra-ordinary art performance artist Mark McGowan is to re-enact the moment Prince William, the future King of England was conceived by his parents Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer.

The event/performance is to take place at the Brick Lane Gallery in East London at 5pm, Sat 28 Apr 2007. The entire walls of the venue are to be painted with murals of Buckingham Palace, royal insignia and the Union Jack, and the National Anthem will be played.

The matrimonial bed will be re-constructed and placed in the centre of the gallery with visitors and guests surrounding it. During the one hour ticketed event/performance two actors, one with a Prince Charles mask on, the other with a Lady Diana mask will re-enact the conception and it is to include what might have been said and how the conception would have taken place, the performance will also be x-rated as it will have adult material.

McGowan says, 'This is an historical piece, it is a moment in our history few people ever thought they would or could see. It is at times like this that art shows its true power by making things appear real, it would have been easy to paint a picture or create a sculpture of the conception, but I hope by using actors  it will bring a sense of authenticity to the piece. I believe this is probably one of my most important works, the gallery only holds a certain amount of people, we will however be making a DVD of the performance so a wider audience can enjoy this fantastic art event.’

There are now 10 limited edition photographic prints of THE RE-ENACTMENT OF THE CONCEPTION OF PRINCE WILLIAM 2007 up for sale right now for £50.

Britain's Prince William's conception is to be recreated by performance artists with a 'live sex performance'.

Actors wearing cardboard boxes emblazoned with the faces of William's parents - Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana - will get amorous in front of a live audience.

Artist Mark McGowan told Britain's Daily Express newspaper: 'There is to be no simulation.'
Admirers of the late princess - who died tragically in a car crash in a Paris tunnel in 1997 - are furious about the planned exhibition and consider it an insult to her memory.

Margaret Funnell, a devoted member of The Diana Circle, said: 'I sincerely hope he does not harm her memory in any way- she is not here to defend herself. Diana was one of the most beautiful women to walk this planet and if it distorts her in any way we will be down on him like a ton of bricks.'
