4. Searching for a cultural experience
Can a work of art somehow help us find a way to discover who we really are, existentially and culturally?
Is referential art—the type of art initiated by a tribute, a homage, appropriationism—the prevailing model in the current art practice?
Can culture cure some of the evils of society?
If a work of art is sensationalist and entertaining, does it become debased?
Taking these four far-reaching unanswered questions as a departure point, I present this simple installation that you yourself generate. It is inspired on the parascientific world of alternative medicine, via chromotherapy, and focuses its attention on the act of searching.
Installation: artificial fog, hand torches and text.
