Modern Art.

Some of what can pass for art today is simply unbelievable.

The more bizarre, the greater the publicity and attention.

I do not want to add anything more to what this writer in the Guardian says. Had I written the piece, I would not have been as gentle with the artist.

    I guess it qualifies as art, unless your definition of art is very restrictive. My only problem with it is that it’s not very interesting. The central idea is amusing for about two seconds and then what? There’s nothing more to say about it.

    I’ll stick to arranging my little bundle of peeled spuds – at least at the end of It I ‘ll enjoy eating them!

    watching babies come out of vaginas is way better, possibly less messy, too 🙂

    I have to agree with your dismissive critique of the particular display of this fellow human being’s perceived interpretation of an artistic presentation. Given the choice between this individual’s artistic abilities and that famous elephants artistic ability… I’ll go with the elephant! 🙂

    maybe it should be promoted not as art but as an appetite deterrent.

  8. Whatever. It doesn’t look like fun to me so I’ll skip it. Why do people react?

    Cheerful Monk made a valid and oh so true observation: “Why do people react?” When I saw the picture and its headline I did react in as much as, like CM, I skipped the article. Only reason I, eventually, did read it because of your link.

    Art? What is art? Art defies all definition.

    May I say the “art” a chicken employs when laying an egg far more wonderous than a woman doing her Easter thing. If I sat her down and asked about the arty farty bit she’d be truly hard pressed to explain it. One of these days someone will go to the toilet and exhibit its contents. As art.

  11. I won’t say you are ever a waste of my time, Ramana. However, giving attention to this “art” felt like a waste of it.

  12. Cathy in NZ says:

    Performance art isn’t as well known as it was in maybe the 1970s when some artists needed to make statements…some of the “art” actually was dangerous especially if the artist decided on a blindfold…

    Then there is the static performance art that possibly starts with artist creating the object and then leaving it to the “viewer or even at times to the elements”

    Take a look at graffiti knitters/or textilers who create something for an object and then hope no one destroys it…

    This just reinforces my opinion that Modern Art is an oxymoron.
