Artist’s Intention, How Much Does it Matter? Part 1.

Does Artist Exist in His Art?

At art exhibitions, we can’t help questioning artist’s hidden motives behind his/her creative output whether or not it is an astounding piece of art. It’s like a guessing game. Contemporary art is criticized for its complexity and provocative format. Yes, it is a tough pill. Kid you not even renowned curators feel intimated and overwhelmed more than you assume. Hence, we often turn our eyes to artist’s note or wall labels expecting to obtain a teeny-tiny bit of evidence, but again you don’t feel convinced or do not simply agree with it. In this article, I want to cast a question how much the intent of artist matters when viewing art.

Artist's Intention and Yayoi Kusama
Yayoi Kusama, Obliteration Room, (2002-2014).

Here’s my conclusion first. Don’t frat if you get their intention or not.

Believe in What You See and How You Feel

Although specifically said to the Minimalism movement, I’d like to interpret Frank Stella’s famous quote, “What you see is what you see” in another way and say viewer’s experiences are in the same logic. Literally, I mean what you see is what you see. In Death of the Author, Roland Barthes says, “a text’s unity lies not in its origin but in its destination.” In other words, the author or artist who originates a text cannot have a superior power. Barthes asserts that when an author is removed, the scope of interpretation expands. 

Artist Intention and Felix Gonzalez Torress
Felix Gonzalez-Torres: “Untitled” (Perfect Lovers), 1991.

In my personal experience, I thought about my heterosexual dating relationship when faced with Felix Gonzalez Torres’ work. However, this piece was birthed to bring awareness of AIDS combined with his personal loss of a loved one. Am I wrong for thinking something else? I hardly think so! There is no such thing as a wrong and correct answer. When a work is created and leaves the artist’s hand, it no longer belongs to the creator, but only viewers. Maybe how a little background story about an artist can be an interesting fact and, of course, you are free to investigate that.

The thing is authorial intention viewing is not the absolute approach. Based on one’s living circumstances and experiences, everyone will feel differently. Furthermore, even if you attempt to comprehend the work based on authorial intention, it will hardly resonate with you in a profound level because we all have different histories in life.

Artist Intention and Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol. Marilyn Monroe. 1967

My advice? Just relax and take a look at whatever you have. Tell me what you think of a work!

When Performance Art Meets Audiences, what happens?

Artist Production and Performance Art

Artist Dun Graham said, “all artists are alike. They dream of doing something that’s more social, more collaborative, and more real than art.”

Ever heard of artists who engage public in their creative process? I luckily had a chance to participate in several art-makings back in college. Among all, I vividly remember the time I washed my hands with a beautiful Venus sculpture made of soap at the museum bathroom. The vanishing soap reflects the passage of time and in order to do so, it requires audience’s participation. 

Performance Art and Soap Project
Mikyung Shin, Bathroom Project.

Such a form of art has many different names: social practice, social art, community-based art, participatory art, etc. It is time-sensitive, site-specific, post-studio, ephemeral and interactive. In other words, it only exists for a fleeting moment and has a distinctive performative aspect. Without participation, it is never complete. As Clair Bishop claimed, I would like to choose the term participatory art for it basically sums up what this branch of art usually shares in common. 

Who are the Artists that Make Participatory Art?

You may have heard the name Marina Abramovic. She is a contemporary artist who has fully explored how far the boundaries of performance art can be pushed, and made it widely known to the world. At the Museum of Modern Art in 2010, she showcased a performance art which invites viewers to come sit opposite her. They would make an eye contact, but no talk, just silence. 

performance art and Abramovic
Marina Abramovic, Artist is Present, 2010, Performance.

The most interesting episode from this installation was when her former romantic partner, Ulay came in as a surprise and they sat down together. They haven’t seen each other since their epic break-up at the Great Wall of China.

At the Museum of Modern Art in 2012, Rirkrit Tiravanija served cooked rice and curry for free to all the audiences. 

Many questions could arise form such performance pieces. Is staring at the artist art? Can you call eating with a bunch of strangers art? Marina Abramovic says, 

I could make art with everything…and the most important [thing] is the concept,” she relates. “This was the beginning of my performance art. And the first time I put my body in front of [an] audience, I understood: this is my media” (MoMA Learning)

It All Comes Down to Life!

Although their art does not harbor a physical form, they force viewers to think critically and challenge them on an intellectual level more than any type of artwork. One would must wrap their head around to just comprehend what this is really about.

In a larger context, these artists can be said to break down the seemingly boundaries between art with life. Mundane, everyday activities are turned into ‘artwork’ in the name of artist. Whether it is about politics, social phenomenon, or gender and identity, the fundamental of art is life. To make that point, maybe those artists chose such an accessible and engaging approach; there is no difference between art and life.

Furthermore, it scrapes off the material quality and erases monetizable value of art. It cannot be marketed nor sold for it being an experience that no one can ever buy! Or at least a participatory art is only partially finished until viewers are present in the scene. Audiences are no longer just there to appreciate, but they rise to the status of co-creators. Meanwhile, one must be forced to accept their insecurity and vulnerability.

Beyond the city, what is out there? Judd and small town in desert!

Love Letter to Small Town

I am a city mouse. I was born in a big city and grew up there throughout my life. Probably the long urbanite life gave birth to my everlasting small-town fantasy. Or Confucian old masters’ poetry about nature which I had to memorize in high school was the beginning. Such a dream does not cross everyone’s mind, but it grew in me immensely and burst out on my first visit to Marfa, Texas.

It was no New York or London. Far away from the city, stars were brightly shining in the clear night sky, and the whole town was filled with America’s iconic modern and contemporary artworks. The desolate, void landscape of West Texas presented the infinite possibility of displaying art that white cube galleries were incapable of. I rushed to look for internship programs in Marfa, though I wound up not applying any of them. I was not ready to go on with a spontaneous decision.

Now, Donald Judd. What Did You Do in Marfa?

All in all, I admire artists who pulled off a bold move transitioning from big city to small town with their artistic ambition, like Donald Judd. The oddest thing in Marfa was Donald Judd’s large-scale outdoor sculptures, the concrete cubes in the middle of grassland. The extensive raw desert was his canvas. One would have to walk about 3 kilometers to get closer to this industrial mass. Truth is once you stand before his immense work, it is impossible to take your eyes off of it. I instantly inspected every corner of the piece and turned my eyes onto the bizarre surroundings. Like I said, there was nothing but withered grass and nature. Despite its eccentric harmony, I would soon find it perfectly fit there. Some people use the word ‘whimsical’ to describe its out-of-place-setting, but to my sense, it was close to ‘serene’ or ‘meditative’.

After the retrospective show at Guggenheim in the 60’s, Donald Judd sought “clean” settings to showcase his artworks (Sides). The “clean” setting that does not interrupt anyone’s view with title or wall label, but enables viewers to solely focus on the moment and experience created by art. Plus, accessibility was another aspect he took into consideration when planning this new work of art. According to

“He was thinking about places where art could be seen by everybody for free, made by a lot of different people who all shared this one idea about making a thing in place.”

What Judd Envisioned…

To accomplish his ambition, Judd was destined to move to Marfa, Texas. As grand as his vision, he meticulously planned this art project and achieve the coherence of architecture, art, and nature. 40 years later, here we are.

According to his daughter, the president of the Judd Foundation’s board, Donald Judd disliked to be categorized under Minimalism and shared one story:

“I would say, ‘Where are the trees? There aren’t any trees here,'” Judd remembers. “The reason I mention trees is he would say, ‘If you look out here, you can actually see the shape of the land, where if it’s covered with trees you can’t see it.’ And I think about the way he would talk about his work in defense, when people would call it minimalist and he didn’t like that description. Just in the way that the desert is extremely rich and beautiful and it doesn’t have a lot of trees, I think he was interested in creating extremely rich work that didn’t have a lot of trees,”

When I think of desert, the image of ‘paused in time’ comes to mind, which is probably why I keep thinking modern artwork beneath the desert sky is odd and eccentric. However, the intriguing irony left an unforgettable, vivid memory in my heart. It was like a pipe dream.
