Favorite Quote from Lynne Cooke

Favorite Quote from Lynne Cooke

This is a copy of what I posted in Graiwoot's wall:

ในหนังสือ IN THIS CIRCUMSTANCE, THE SOLE OBJECT OF ATTENTION SHOULD BE THE TREACHERY OF THE MOON มีคนชื่อ Lynne Cooke เขียนถึงงาน installation ชื่อ WHEN AN OBJECT GETS SICK II ของ Araya Rasdjarmrearnsook โดยเปรียบเทียบกับงานของ Eulalia Valldosera ด้วย โดย Lynne Cooke เขียนว่า

"Space is taken as a physical context rather than a neutral backdrop to the work, to the degree that installation involves guiding attention away from singular objects into complexes and relations structured within the viewing space itself. The recent recourse to this mode, first formulated in Dada and Surrealist work then regenerated by Fluxus and Conceptual artist, coincided with the reconceptualisation of notions of absence in post-structuralist theory so that rather than being conceived as mere nothingness, absence because a productive force seminal to discourse and psycholinguistics. Albeit in very different ways much of the work of Ann Hamilton, Susan Hiller, Tony Oursler, Araya Rasdjarmrearnsook, Eulalia Valldosera and Heri Dono investigates or exploits these conceptualizations."

What Lynne Cooke wrote made me want to see the works of the artists mentioned here very much.

The photo is from FLYING ANGELS (Heri Dono).
