Oscar Tuazon at Bergen Kunsthall


Wasn't aware Tuazon had gone Andrea Zittel, pods and geodesics. But apparently he was born under the dome. A school for water. It is difficult watching art's procedures escape its cultural sandbox and enter into the wider world - witness "creativity" against reality. Perhaps the goals are different, in art visibility tis the highest order, where in reality it's the bare minimum against a decades long trudgery toward enaction. Art relies on Buckminster solutions: "At best giving the boring problems of our coming environmental cataclysm at least ostensibly interesting solutions... ideas are less feasible-solutions than they are acts of branding and dissemination, where excitement is itself the solution. Whether or not you feel excited is yours."
