THE LANGUAGE OF ART OR GOBBLEDYGOOK?


EUREKA! This week I have finished on a high- I have listened to 2 very well known artists giving interviews and I have been able to understand both of them without feeling I had suddenly descended from some star ship from a distant universe. Thankyou TRACY EMIN and GRAYSON PERRY. Tracy for refusing to stay quiet about her life experiences with the possibility of upsetting the sensibilities of the more prudish and morally judgemental; and Grayson for his REITH LECTURES which he was able to be humorous, informative and sometimes scathing of art being driven by the £ sign. Can art shock us anymore was my favourite lecture? Also can everything be called art if I say it is???? Which artists do you think talk the most gobbledygook? xdonna
