Idea Art

My Idea Art, or conceptual art, has typically involved translating an idea into action. Both “Quik Action” and “Project Renga” would today be categorized as Social Practice art. They were real world interventions and collaborations with others, which had sociopolitical significance. What is presented here is the documentation of these interventions. The aesthetic interest lies not in the manufacture of objects, the public performances or the documentation presented here, but in the interventions themselves where the primary audience experienced the unfamiliar and the unexpected. “Art/Politics,” on the other hand turns the practice of documentation on its head. It is falsified evidence of an intervention that did not happen. Here the aesthetic interest lies in the interaction between the (perhaps unsuspecting) art audience and the manufactured evidence of a piece of social practice art.
