What kind of art do you do?
There is no exact term to define my activity. Artistic work nowadays involves the joint activity of a large number of people with many different roles and skills and my job is to interact with all of them to make ART HAPPEN. I do interact and bring my services to galleries, institutions, auction houses, art fairs, exhibitions spaces and also artists. I am an artist, a curator, a photographer, a producer, and to encompass most of we can, I am an art CREATIVE.
Defining artists used to be easy in the past and craft, performance and art was separated. Artists are still the aesthetics leaders but times have obviously changed. do you have an explanation for that?
Artists I work with tend to tour on large exhibitions and biennales and live on allowances and stipends rather than mainly selling their art, as a physical material, in traditional gallery settings. These artists also started to emerge as many mediums, especially technological media, have been introduced into the language of the arts. The new environment for the arts has challenged artists to address evolving patterns of art participation that are characterized by a blurring of genres, categories and shifting boundaries between amateurism and professionalism.
Your artistic practice has been solicited internationally and you seem to be on all the fronts. How would you define your role as an art creative.?
There is an undeniable hierarchization of artistic positions, practices, and material based on the notion of the art object itself. Today, we value the art world beyond its physicality. Yet we still relate to the traditional model of visual glorification of artistic materiality rather than to the new model in which artists provide intangible, unsellable, immaterial art. That is why I do believe that most of the art positions and roles nowadays are outdated. I think that many people no longer correspond to the economic, social, and cultural figure of the “artist’ as it has been constituted in the modern age… and I am one of them!
My role, as being a creative and also a curator, is to assist artists and art institutions into the making of art, at every step of the production AND the creation chain, to produce the work with them and to facilitate their research and bring my suggestions into their aesthetics.
