artwork by Walid Elsawi

A dozen statements, taken from the artist’s ongoing interview project are written on glowing neon boxes, peppered around the space. The interview consists of responses he gives to the question “are you an artist?” a means of exploring the current climate of contemporary art, and the cult of personality, with a tongue-in-cheek emphasis on certain stereotypes, perceived pre-requisites or trends.

Performance Art Reading Response 

theworldneedsmorespinach:

Performance art is the all-encompassing medium. It’s fascinating because there are no boundaries: it can literally be any type of art that is live. This is extremely relevant to Marina Abramovic’s Artist is Present because performance art is a way to show not only the end result, but the process….

Erwin Wurm

Erwin Wurm is known for his humorous approach to formalism. About the use of humor in his work, Wurm says in an interview: “If you approach things with a sense of humor, people immediately assume you’re not to be taken seriously. But I think truths about society and human existence can be approached in different ways. You don’t always have to be deadly serious. Sarcasm and humor can help you see things in a lighter vein Erwin Wurm (born 1954) is an Austrian artist born in Bruck an der Mur / Styria. He currently lives and works in Vienna and Limburg, Austria

Ten images, ten stages of life. My piece surrounds itself by the idea of conventional, or the life that is kind of sold to us. I was mostly inspired by Adam Freeland’s song “We Want Your Soul”. The process of making the images was really simple, although I thought its simplicity was fine. I was going for a pseudo museum gallery look. Hooray.
