This weekend I will finish my final 2014 art-review. The last six months have been a great work-experience. I have seen a lot of exhibitions, both in Norway and abroad. I have written & been published. And I have, for the first time, received competent & thorough editorial feedback along the way (the value of good editors should not be under-estimated!).
Last spring I was not sure if to continue writing on art or not, now I feel so very inspired & eager to continue. But I also know it is wise take small breaks every now and then – to catch up on my reading, and work on my personal writing.
Silent studies is the plan for the weeks to come (crossing fingers that I won’t be devoured by x-mass), sitting down, not to rest, but to work …
Apropos sitting: Ai’s white marble furnitures, modeled after leather couches, are probably the most hilariously ugly & funniest works of art I’ve seen so far this year. How anyone can choose to sculpture these monstrous middle-class furnitures in marble is a mystery. Somehow it feels very up-lifting & liberating.
