They had an installation once that was a bunch of guys clothes on the floor with the title “a bachelors apartment” or something stupid like that. Guess my little brothers messy room is really art???
It would have been, had YOU thought to present it as such first, and been able to convince the gallery that you deserve a showing.
I had exactly the same reaction a few years ago at the Pompidou. The installation was the inside of an old garage, with spilled oil on the floor, empty gas and antifreeze cans, old tools littering the workbenches, old license plates and old calendars on the walls, etc. A real mess. I think it was called "my father's garage" or something similar. I remember thinking that I could have done that. Unfortunately, I hadn't.
I'm afraid you and I will have to achieve fame and recognition through some other means, Glenn. I'm currently thinking of taking up the decathlon, in which I'm quite certain I'll be very successful.
