Darren Bader: Life As a Readymade

Text by Darren Bader.

Featured image, of an "authorless jpeg" that runs beside this text: "Why do I like it? There’s (kinda) obviously a sexual element to it. The tongue is an interesting shade of orange which is interesting and I think I’d want to taste it even if I’d prefer to taste it pinker. But that’s not the transport I’m talking about. It’s the weird nimbus around the dis‑
embodied mouth in relation to the arcs of the lips and the oblique color separation behind them that forms the field for transport. The colors are largely hideous to me. The photographic element is fascinating insofar as it captures the detail of human lips and teeth (and, to a lesser extent, the tongue). Blah blah blah. The full image transports me and provides just the right amount of tension to dis-afford me pure pleasure/disgust. Is that oversimplifying things? Is that art? Why am I even writing this and to whom? Am I just trying to defend sauntering amid the complacent and ill-defined orthodoxies which lurk within me?" is reproduced from <I>Darren Bader: Life As a Readymade</I>.Darren Bader’s Life As a Readymade is a four-part disquisition on contemporary art culture and his doubts about its terms of engagement. Addressing inanities, profanities and vanities in the contemporary world of art, the first section is an “open letter to the art world”; the second a meditation on the art fair phenomenon; the third is about “naming things in the face of no names”; the final section addresses what the artist regards as “a paucity of poetics.
