DO DEAD ARTISTS MAKE ART?

DO DEAD ARTISTS MAKE ART?
2005, audiovisual installation

This is an audio-visual installation which takes the form of a graveyard, where tombstones bear the names of the dead artists who contributed to the writting of the 20th century art history. The title itself poses a question to the viewer: Do dead artists make art? The work is based on the influence dead artists continue to excercise on the living ones, and especially points to the capital that is being created by various retrospectives, publications etc. of the deceased artists. To the setting of the graveyard, which is in itself a contemplative place, sound has been added, a speech with a deep, resounding voice uttering the names of the deceased and date of their birth and death.
