Past: Than Hussein Clark

"...staging the objects as theatrical their vacancy becomes strength, hollowness holding a surface for eyes to move and containing whatever importance the narrative can attribute it..."

"a category optimistically defined as a risque entertainment that absorbs and harbors the fringes of culture, an ideal art that would dissolve lip-service to post-modernity still aggressively holding on to the autonomous work. It's like championing spaghetti to replace diamonds. We would have to give up the authorial subject for the carnival ... the curatorial address of throwing it all in and letting god sort 'em out with song and dance."
