Not all grannies are built the same. Meet Emily Heathcote’s grannie. Emily, a student at Surrey Institute of Art and Design, has won a Stella Dry/i-D Magazine competition with this shot of gran, a bottle and a lighter. Judges, including Ron Arad and Tomato’s Graham Wood, decided Emily best met the `Strong Yet Light’ brief with her piece called Le Ptomane, after the infamous French music-hall act Joseph Pujol, who could fart to order. Impressions of politicians were a speciality, apparently. Full marks to Emily and her grandmother. An exhibition of her work and that of other entrants is now on show at Freedom caf, 60 Wardour Street, London W1.
