“Photographed underwater, working in collaboration with Yotam From, the images document the transformation of a dress submerged in the salt-rich waters of the Dead Sea.”
Words of wisdom by John Waters, interviewed by Big Think… (oh and he says also that contemporary art hates you! and that’s very true)
This is a first draft, I’ll be working more on this list, then publish it as a complete guide to contemporary art new cliches. Maybe.
In the meantime, feel free to add yours!
1. people covered up in paint
2. minimal concrete sculptures
3. upside down stuff
4. miniaturized stuff
5. sliced stuff
6. neon light written stuff (especially literary quotes)
7. works unveiling art system’s contradictions
8. underwater stuff
9. invisible works of art
10. all kinds of pranks (you’re not funny)
update: here are some interesting addictions that popped up in my facebook profile:
11. skulls or other “cool” objects covered in diamonds (Manolo Remiddi)
12. all videostuff with “talking heads” (Aristarkh Chernyshev)
13. performance art involving nude bodies (Alexei Shulgin)
update n.2: Bruce Sterling just made his comments on the list, and added a very good one:
n.14 electronic-art installations with snarled, kinky, foot-snagging wiring
