I don’t know whether to be utterly disgusted by this, or applaud these people for their genius.
Basic synopsis is: 5 artists go into convenience store. Artists purchase every single item in said convenience store. EVERYTHING. Not just one of everything, literally EVERYTHING. They then display items in a gallery as “artworks” and sell them for big bucks, like an upside down Coca Cola can for $150, or a lighter for $50.
This is considered Art, apparently.
A sample description, for a piece titled “Les Inedible” (aka “a pack of Orbit gum”
…this highly controversial piece was once thought to be the artist’s response to the old wives’ tail, which stated ‘swallowed gum will remain in the human stomach for up to seven years.” Following it’s New York debut appearance, it was revealed that the art work was indeed indigestible, this it’s association with the tail was merely a coincidence. Explaining the title change from ‘Free food, please try some’ to it’s current title ‘Les Inedible,’ Visitors to the gallery have been banned from eating the substance ever since.
Why do I bother wasting my time with this cartooning nonsense?
Because cartooning is actually art.
I wouldn’t say this is “not art”, but I’d say it’s “pretentious/terrible art”. A lot of art is about context. ˘o˘
