The title of Hans Christian Andersen’s fable, The Emperor’s New Clothes, acts as the starting point for this project that uses installation and performance to shape the relationship between viewers and works of art. The performance is based on a similar format to a traditional guided tour in a museum.
The length of the tour and the different dynamics employed are based on his prior experience and work: explaining what contemporary art is to people.
Is there any point to art? Who consumes art? Who ought to? Is art something eternal?
Does our perception of what is and isn’t art change? Should it change? If society changes, shouldn’t art change too?
