Image of gallery and exhibition review


"I am for an art that takes its form
from the lines of life itself, 
that twists and extends and accumulates
and spits and drips, 
and is heavy and coarse and blunt and
sweet and stupid as life itself." 
- Drenched Co
(Taken from Claes Oldenburg's "I Am for an Art..." in Environments, Situations, Spaces (New York: Martha Jackson Gallery, 1961)).

Comment: "In researching this work, I had to sit through hours reading the most harrowing tales of violence inflicted on man by man. " - FaSa
