as seen through a cloud of words

In New York Ryan Gander’s publicist demonstrates how hard you have to work to spin art in the public domain. You see his latest piece through this cloud of words. From Art in America:

“British artist Ryan Gander’s wildly non-signature conceptual undertakings explore order and chaos phenomenologically, and always find a looming kismet in unknown quantities. The artist’s inventive, resolutely multi-media works play on the Duchampian interrogation of art as the thing yet to be named, and include the invention of a new word and the exaltation of the artist’s lecture.”

The author goes on, and on, in the same vein. And all for a visual one-liner. Now that’s a law of diminishing returns, yes? No? Susan Best calls for a return of The Bad Writing Award.
