Modern Art


Remember that time Damien Hirst put a dead shark in a tank and called it “The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living”?

Well…that’s what art critics said…anyone could have done it…

Yet no one until Hirst did it, right?

Nowadays it’s all about innovation, at all costs. In life and art, people want the one of a kind idea…the one in a million, billion, gazillion…

It’s just lazy thinking…

The idea is worthless. It’s the execution that matters.

What?

Yes.

Ideas are shit if you aren’t good enough.

Best novels of the twenty first century? What are they about? People doing stuff that isn’t so outrageous or out of the ordinary, people like us. But they were written in a style that was unique…

Get the idea?

I used to write down ideas…one after another. I was obsessed about coming up with one of a kind ideas…something no one ever thought to write about…

But I ended up writing stories that were simple, yet close to my heart. The stories that mattered to me, about the people I was or wished to be.

We should never forget this… modern art is still art, and art is only as good as the things it makes us feel…

One thought on “Modern Art

  1. So very true. I remember going to MOMA in New York with a friend and he said the same thing of doing it easily to which I replied it’s not only about the art its about the perception. The artist has it and you don’t’ that makes the difference.
