Art is awesome because it can be so many things to so many people. Often UK tabloid papers destroy modern art when the turner prize is announced...bemoaning that anything other than a canvas depicting a bowl of fruit or a horse is NOT ART..and of course this is wrong, art is many many things to many many people. I dont get some art, but then i know it is still valid to those that enjoy it, in the same way i know art that i enjoy doesnt define or relate to 'art' for other people ....BUT there are still sometimes, only rarely however, when something is presented as art, and is just WRONG...now i know this is a moral side i am taking but this is my blog and i feel this is very very wrong...even if in theory it could be art, i still feel there is no place in this world for this to be happnening....what am i talking about? well over on the arkitip intelligence blogs, Damon Ways recent post highlighted something that i urge you to help stop.
I will copy and paste what Damon Way said....
"Fuck This Guy!!!
Can you believe this crap… In 2007, the ‘artist’ Guillermo Vargas Habacuc, took a dog from the street, tied him to a rope in an art gallery, and starved him to death. For several days, the ‘artist’ and the visitors of the exhibition have watched emotionless the shameful ‘masterpiece’ based on the dog’s agony, until eventually he died. But this is not all… the prestigious Visual Arts Biennial of the Central American decided that the ‘installation’ was actually art, so that Guillermo Vargas Habacuc has been invited to repeat his cruel action for the biennial of 2008. I am hitting this ceiling with this… boycott this scumbag and do your part to stop it…"
