Günter und Mutti
a critical review of the readymade
video 3.17min 2011
A Groucho Marx like character analyzes 2 found objects - wooden trivets with the inscription Mutti and Günter on them. He makes up a story about Günter and Mutti . He also debates whether these trivets would work as art works exhibited in a gallery.
I have done several "performances" being the Critic - I have criticized Art Photography, press images of well known corporate and political persons, Icelandic power structures and now the ready made in fine art.
By wearing this mask I feel more powerful and free to talk about topics that I don't necessarily know that much about. I somehow feel more important.
