Dying to Be Understood

(Renaissance Full HD, Unicorn)

“All this art is dying to be understood. And it is, instantly, by everyone, in the exact same way. Never mind that Oscar Wilde said, ‘The moment you think you know a work of art, it is dead to you.’ It fills galleries and biennials and is already so dead-on-arrival it may as well put a gun to its own head. It’s all intellectual wallpaper, pricey placeholders, ham-acting, and showbiz. I know artists are facing knotty times, and I say this with love, but: Enough.”
