Remodernists

Recently I was asked to join the ‘remodernist’ group, which apparently is made up of members ‘who would challenge the hegemony of post-modernism.’

Well, sentiments like these could certainly have taken the words out of my mouth.

I wonder how many people are getting tired of the elitsm, the gimmickism ranging from exhibitng dogs to die (allegedly) to urinals, along with (allegedly from an artist friend-cum-student of mine who saw it), a machine that makes synthetic but authentic manure (with no commercial or scientific application whatsoever, It was All in the Nameof Art), to more exhibiting more organically-produced poo in various hues?

The Emperors-new-clothes aspect of the cleverness of it all created laziness for me too. Why bother with an inner artistic pah of transmutation or however you might wish to define it, when some graduate from the right school only has to daub an ugly shape with ugly colours (ugliness cannot be superficial after all) and make thousands out of it???

I do hope that my work will be able to speak for itself more and more.
