Tell a mouse 1997 / 2008 (is over... & i'm fine, thx)

& je me demande / & i ask to myself :

renoncer (au pouvoir) n'est-ce pas le plus grand Pouvoir ? renoncer (à l'art) n'est-ce pas le plus grand Art ?
to give up (the power) isn't this the greatest Power? to give up (the art) isn't this the greatest Art?

    Il serait plus juste de dire : "renoncer" n'est-ce pas le plus grand Art ?

    it would be righter to say : "to give up" isn't the greatest art?
    • Frederic Madre | Tue Jun 10th 2008 9:28 a.m.
      tamara: "to give up" isn't the greatest art?

      it's not.

      yet, it's certainly important to know how and when to end something/anything
      pronouncing it "dead" is usually not a good way to achieve that effect
      formal ending is more difficult specially when you have achieved a certain level of notoriety

    Dear Tamara,
    Giving up the baroque elements can sometimes make art become ART.
    Going back to roots, strip the superfluous and keep the essential.
    Deconstruct the art pieces untill it becomes art.

    yes yes

    alors probablement peut-on dire que,
    renoncer à vouloir renoncer demande le plus grand Art.

    then probably can one say that, to give up wanting to give up request greatest Art.

    This was there an ultimate provocation. One is born 'artist', as one is born black, yellow, white…
    The rest (success, career…) is especially a question of circumstances, ambition, opportunity (ies)…

    I do not give up art, but with the capitalist system in which art is involved.
    Satisfaction of the need to be recognized (and loved!), by the objects, even virtual, that we produce, is a perpetual fight. This fight for the "paraître" is all the opposite of freedom.

    Ce n'était là qu'une ultime provocation.

    On naît 'artiste', comme on naît noir, jaune, blanc...
    Le reste (succès, carrière...) est surtout une question de circonstances, d'ambition, d'opportunité(s)...

    Je ne renonce pas à l'art, mais au système capitaliste dans lequel l'art évolue.
    L'assouvissement du besoin d'être reconnus (et aimés!), par les objets, même virtuels, que nous produisons, est un combat perpétuel. Ce combat pour le "paraître" est tout le contraire de la liberté.

    "La liberté ne se conquiert pas. C'est l'absence de lutte qui est liberté.
    Nous créons et entretenons ce contre quoi nous luttons."
    (Bertrand FREYMOND 'Le Guerrier du Troisème Millénaire')

    born 'artist', as one is born black, yellow, white… do you mean is a question of genetic or you mean each person is a potential artist ? or maybe you mean something else ...
  • Tamara LAI | Wed Jun 11th 2008 5:52 a.m.

    yes, something innate
    then, one can choose in making career or not

    maybe each person is a potential artist as any discipline can be carried out with art, which combines sponaneity and control (no, this n' is not a nonsense !)
