I don’t know anything about art, but I know what I like…

“An artist’s sculpture has been rejected by the Royal Academy of Arts which has instead opted to display the wooden support it was put on.”

If this had happened in an amateur exhibition it wouldn’t have been funny, but for the Royal Academy to make such a mistake is hilarious. I know that art does not have to be at all literal, but what possible links could the Academy’s selectors have come up with between the parts they chose to display and the title of the piece “One Day Closer To Paradise”?
