May 2, 2010: Love - Love

Looks like this dude is in a world of hurt.



Say it ain't so, dude, say it ain't so. OK, it ain't so.

Quote:
For this piece he adapted an abandoned 6.5 meter yacht so that it appears to be perpetually sinking. To create this, the vessel was split and a new keel was constructed allowing it to be sailed by Berthier at a 45 degree angle off the coast of Normandy. Love-Love, like much of his oeuvre, is impressive, poetic and humorous.


Quote:
The boat now belongs to some wealthy London Banker to whom he sold it for £50,000.
I wonder if he paid £50,000 as art, or to goof with people?

I'm not loving it.

I'll give you poetic and humorous - but impressive? Not so much.

Epitome of an attention whore.

Ditto

Isn't that the very essence of being an artist?

Maybe for his next work, he can design half an airplane sticking out of a skyscraper.



glatt  Sunday May 2 08:30 PM

I think it's clever and cool. But anyone who sails around in this thing is an attention whore, unless it's something like a festival where art boats are the whole point.

That may be a typo.
