Jos de Gruyter & Harald Thys at KIN & Gladstone Gallery

Jos de Gruyter & Harald Thys is a long term investigation into the lowest level of stupidity we can still identify with. The lowest level of lifeform, brainmatter. The groaning idiocy of the fringes, the plains of simpletons, us, you slurring, drooling everyone, the world, these things contained by the world, by the artworld filled with the cranially polished, symbolically medalled, forced to consider farts. Perhaps stupidity is the The Thing, the attempt to assimilate an intelligence, to become human, invade us. Stupidity is a poison ready to escape its terraria, spread.
