“This is not a gallery”.
It seems like people who usually don’t go to art places, as well as artists, tend to welcome an exhibit that potentially changes with each new guest. Oddly enough, people who know art – without making it – seem to have more of a difficulty to embrace the concept. I try to address the issue by a hand-written note at the entrance – eventually also giving credit to all those who contribute by their additions and interventions.
Today’s visitors are of the open-minded kind; an international artist / curator gives encouraging feedback. A couple living nearby peep in, stay a while, and compliment my work in the most wonderful way – dubbing it “kind of industrial”. I’m delighted.
