This inspiring Ted talk is sure to prove polarising, even amongst HFA readers. Shea Hembrey, « maker » extraordinaire, explains how he went about creating a hundred works of art for an event of his very own.
The twist? Each of these works purportedly comes from a different artist, with a unique personality, background, medium and interest. Shea thereby questions the making of Art and the place of the artist. Is he really making Art or simply manufacturing pieces? And is it even possible for a single mind to give birth to genuinely separate expressions of the artistic process?
We look forward to hearing your thoughts. In the meantime, we could not help but marvel at the diversity of the techniques brought to play and the quality of execution that permeates this surreal « Biennial ».
