ART, HUH?…┬áModern art is still challenges me even now I have Ben and his extensive knowledge. Take this exhibit from the Fruitmarket Gallery by Bill Bollinger, an American artist. Bill is no longer with us, but is interesting art his making the rounds. I do not understand how four plastic pipes filled with the water Bill used all those years ago constitutes art. This piece coupled with the detailed instructions of filling a room with graphite powder and the chain link fence which takes over the second floor leaves me scratching my head. It is only when Ben standing by a rusty barrel filled with stagnant water explains we should look at how the artist uses these objects in a new way that they begin to make more sense. Thanks Ben!
