Is vulgarity the highest form of art?

This is a painting from 2005 that I have made into a new artwork by making it the site for a fireworks display. The fireworks were attached to the painting with oil paint and discharged on Guy Fawkes night in 2016 in London Fields. It is from a series that take finished paintings and alter their meaning by making them functional, the site of an activity or otherwise redefined.
