Josilda da Conceição is pleased to present Really Real, an exhibition by Rob Bouwman, Christian Henkel, Gijs van Lith, Arthur Stokvis
This exhibition is based on 5 simple questions Laurie Anderson spoke about in her interview in the New York Times. She’s an artist, visionair and leading thinkers of the 21th century. For more then half a century, she has taken things we know best - our bodies, our rituals, our nation - how strange they really are. Her recent profile writing by Sam Anderson is very interesting, because it contains a wonderful intro that’s not in the original piece, explaining how Anderson has a list of five questions she asks to figure out whether what she’s working on is any good or not.
Laurie Anderson's five questions:
1 Is it complicated enough?
2 Is it simple enough?
3 Is it crazy enough?
4 Is it beautiful enough?
5 Is it stupid enough?
