— Don’t be overwhelmed. Compartmentalize. Break big things down into small, manageable pieces. Process one piece at a time. One day at a time. Compete only with your past self. Take care of your present self. Prepare a gift for your future self.
Ah, look at all the lonely people.
Just a rough cut patched together using synth instruments. Need to record with live music!

Combining radical notions of performativity and the body as liminal space, my practice interrogates the theoretical limitations of altermodernism. My work, which traverses disparate realms of object-making such as painting and performance, investigates the space between metabolism and metaphysics and the aporia inherent to such a discourse.
Are you impressed yet? These forms of writing are scattered across the contemporary art world. You can find preposterously complex, jargon-laden artist statements on the websites of galleries and pop-up project spaces all over the English-speaking world. If you don’t believe me, join the e-flux mailing list. I regularly visit such exhibition spaces in London and beyond, and read – with total, dulling indifference – the often pompous ramblings of what Alix Rule and David Levine call International Art English…
My feeling is not that the vocabulary of artspeak is without meaning, but that it has a specific place. Academia is only one part of the art world. My dislike is not for the language of art speak, more the effect it has on the art industry in its ability to engage with a wider audience. Not to mention what such language does to the reputation of writing in the arts, as well as the wider practice of writing itself. Writing about your work should be an open and compelling activity, not a labyrinthine chore.
