"The individual searches for the secret of life and death. That is the inspiration and the key.
The reality of impressions and the impression of reality.
The ordinary event leads to the beauty and understanding of the world.
Start out and go in.
Each work is singular, each work is of one kind.
Personal, eccentric, peculiar, quirky, idiosyncratic, queer.
The presentation of a real thing.
The ordinary and the rare, their interconnectedness and interchangeability.
There is a quotidian sense of loss and tragedy.
Collect, accumulate, gather, preserve, examine, catalogue, read, look, study, research, change, organize, file, cross-reference, number, assemble, categorise, classify, and conserve the ephemeral.
Art should make use of common methods and materials so there is little difference between the talk and the talked about.
A sort of journalist reporting on the common, observable world.
Suicide is often the subject because it is a representative example of the ultimate moment of mystery. The last private thought.
Look for narrative of any kind. Anti-narrative, non-narrative, para-narrative, semi-narrative, quasi-narrative, post-narrative, bad narrative.
The artist is a mysterious entertainer.”
From Allen Ruppersberg’s Fifty Helpful Hints on the Art of the Everyday.
