I came up with this action movie scene in which robbers steal art from the pavilion. It’s not just some specific work of work, but art in general. Except that’s hard to explain to someone who sees paintings only as aesthetics. But everybody understands the virtual world of film. I wanted to indicate that contemporary art is being crushed by film and television media.
Whose attention should art capture? The attention of curators, collectors, gallery owners, fisherman, audiophiles or wildebeests? Television captures the most attention anyway, due to its very nature — a concentration of information and ease of inhalation. Art stopped captivating me long ago. I prefer film.
