The concept of art... "The View from Here' exhibition / 21 November 2011

words written vertically, with letters reversed

'Overlapping' iIlustration to the poem 'People Do Say'

Zoom in to this image and read text description

Extract from a Saturday "in Residence" conversation at Salisbury Arts Centre partly inspired by the relative invisibility of Aidan Moesby's artworks in The View from Here, plus People do Say:

Does art that no-one sees have
anything to be heard?
Can it have the impact of a tree
falling in the forest?
Is it dead
or alive in
the box?
If no-one sees it
is it
art?

Where
does the concept of art
reside?
When no-one can see
does the artist
exist?

Without hats
this might not
exist.

 

People do say
say overlapping things
things I've not heard
heard only in passing
passing words they like
like a party game
game people.
