one and only

"somehow reminds me of youu"

Cindy sent me this:

Janine Antoni: "You know, we talked about schools but I haven’t mentioned anything about my experience as a teacher now. I teach at Columbia. I like to talk to my students about the importance of fantasy, because I think we all have a secret conversation with an imaginary viewer in our mind when making. This imaginary viewer could be modeled on a mentor, favorite artist, a best friend—or it might just be an ideal projection of a part of oneself. This is something that I like to encourage, because I think it’s healthy in the artmaking process to hone in on that specific dialogue. Then there are the more concrete fantasies in my work—like the desire to pee off a skyscraper, or chew on 600 lbs of chocolate (laughs). These are the crazy fantasies that I am allowed to live out in the name of art! I want to engage my own and the other’s imagination as though we were meeting somewhere in the unconscious. That is the space of art. It’s why I like Bruce Nauman. He seems to be a direct conduit into a particular place in my unconscious. It’s almost like I can recognize his work because I’ve experienced it in a dream. He seems to take me to that same place every time. I need him for that because I can’t access that place on my own."

and I laughed...

this reminds me to "live out your imagination to the fullest!"
