Boris and Tracey Emin: partners in crime

From his expression and body language, it looks like Boris is auditioning for a female  Alec Guinness role in Kind Hearts and Coronets, but apparently not.  He is mimicking a famous artist, as is his partner in crime, artist Tracey Emin.

Body language expert Judy James is entranced by Boris’s body language, which she examines in detail here.  In today’s Mail on Sunday, Judy says:   “In an era in which politicians turn themselves inside out in a bid to produce the perfect sight-bite, reverting to the kind of naturalistic gesticulation and posing you’d see on your average Thunderbirds puppet between takes, Boris shines as a beacon of unfettered individuality. This of course taps into the British psyche in a way that US-style presidential posturing never can, as we tend to prefer genuine characters to knitting-pattern alphas.

In this larky, double-trouble pose we have the Mayor of London mimicking the behaviour of a leading artist, with both looking like small schoolchildren being hilariously naughty. Twinned face-pulling is always funnier than solo gurning as it suggests like-mindedness that stands well beyond the boundaries of trying to be perfectly behaved.”

  2. Hilarious picture of Boris. Wonder which artist he is imitating. Grayson Perry?

  3. Boris is an amazing mimic. He must have an exceptionally acute ear because he is brilliant at accents.

  4. Ha Ha Boris looks like Widow Twankey!

  5. Boris is definitely in a class of his own. Totally unique.

  6. What is it with Boris’s hair in this picture? He looks like he has had a wash and set specially for the occasion.

  7. The emptiness of 2 attention seekers checking each others potential to improve the own image “worth”.

    Vacuous entropy!
