Dramatic readings of the worst artist statements, gallery press releases and art criticism. Some of them have already been featured on this site; others are based on tip-offs and reports from colleagues or readers.
My original commentary on this text is here: Lacuna Space-Time Vortex Mimesis Interrogation.
Let’s talk about “the field of lacunary knowledge.” This is oxymoronic, given that a lacuna is a gap or missing section. We might be very well aware that there is a gap in a body of knowledge, but by definition we cannot know what information existed in that gap until the missing information is recovered and the lacuna is filled, making it not a lacuna any more. Therefore there cannot be such a thing as “lacunary knowledge.” If you must use the word “lacunary”, I will accept “lacunary speculation” or “lacunary hypothesising”, although I may still slap you a few times.
Taking a break next Friday; the last of the current series will be published on the 18th October to coincide with my appearance at Sluice Art Fair 2013 in London with the complete Artbollocks Theatre oeuvre so far, and on Saturday 19th they’re a hosting live online chat with me
investigating forms of discourse that hover between hegemonic academic forms and widespread vernacular dissimulation as practiced on the middle class CV about international art English and artbollocks. See the Sluice site for details. I’ll also be presenting monthly live performances of Artbollocks Theatre in London’s Trendy East End™ from this November. More information anon.
