The outside man

This guy did not dare to enter in this room. his reaction, like many people in front of a modern art work or installation is very common. I really think people don't know how to handle with those kind of art though it is - in my opinion - much easier to read & understand an art piece of the XXth century rather than older ones...


just dive into it, immerse yourself into it, its universe, analyse your feelings about all this and there you go : you already start to make your opinion on what the message the artist wanted to convey...


Older stuff like paintings of the XVth and so on are so full of artistical guidelines of their time that they are impossible to really appreciate if you're not an expert or helped in the process... while modern art really stands on its own.


Well, concerning that guy, this installation sure remained a big red box full of mysteries...
