The Insane Artist

Just saw the Bruce Nauman exhibit in Montreal.

Very cool stuff. I repeatedly fail to understand modern art. It seems to be the sane observing the insane artist with little hope of truly understanding their madness that created the ‘art’.

Can a doctor understand, or worse – cure – insanity? What do I understand of Nauman, Kerouac, Duchamp, Ginsberg, …. except that they existed over the edge and looked back at us.

That being said, Nauman’s work is definitely worth seeing and you should check out the exhibit before it closes.
