This week, the “anarchic wit” that arises from the revolutionary, hitherto unknown act of drawing with a pencil. My original commentary on this text is here: One Dimensional.
“He meets his counterpart as a discreet partner…” It’s rare for an art text to accurately convey how blithely sordid, mercenary and pervy many artists are about exploiting other people to make their work, but this is a pretty good distillation of it. It almost sounds like a phrase from a disturbing Craigslist personal ad.
See some Artbollocks Theatre videos and a live discussion of bad artist statements and egregious press releases at the artist-led Sluice Art Fair this weekend (19th-20th October) in London.
