Good art activates both heart & mind. Its a dualisme not always well reflected in contemporary conceptual art. We often see art drowning in its own philosophical – or; as is more & more the case today – political slogans.
I do definitively understand the need for political revolt; but for the artist the uttering is not enough in itself; something has to be added (or maybe subtracted) for a statement to become art.
And sometimes nothing is more radical than the seemingly conservative.
