IS THE END OF POSTMODERNISM
OF IGOR BASKIN
THE BASE CONCEPTION
of the artist is the main content of any piece of art…any piece of art
is no more and no less then projection of creator's personality into the
artistic form…special characteristics of artist's personality is the most
important content, the main and the only value of any phenomena of art,
which whenever existed…personality of the artist is phenomena of art as
itself, completely structured pole-positive the ready made self-developing
object, ready-exist artistic content, the only special form, self-recreated
mechanism……mission of an artist in world is sincere and adequate self-expression…technique
of fulfillment is changed to technique of self-expression…an artist - is
an universal creative structure and ready form…
NAME AND CREATION - MATERIAL AND IDEAL.
OF THE NAME.
the all creations of an artist only the name won't be distracted…because
only the name is really ideal…the name is more then creation…the name is
more then an artist…own name is going to become the NAME as itself…the
name, as an ideal substance, lives, gets and lose qualities, while a public
name and a creation. Material and ideal."
slogans of the program
Artist's name - is the main and the only creation of the life
The name Igor Baskin - is the art's object, which owns aesthetic, physical
and metaphysical qualities.
The ideal aim of the program is the personification of being, or an absolute
I do things which in advance I don't understand myself I'm sorry, it is
really a pity, but it is much more better then to make things which I can't
understand at all
guess that I already is not a postmodern artist, not to see that I use
languages worked out during of postmodern xperience. However, now I don't
much care how to name what I do.
just prefer to work. I do everything I take worth, everything I like, everything
that tell me my sense, my emotions, my intuition, my intellect. I'm looking
new forms of self-expression, and in this way not to refuse myself to use
any forms of "old" traditional art if I fell like it, if I own it, and
if I have it in my baggage. Experiments with different forms took me a
lot time when I was younger, and very good enriched my artistic experience,
but now, I'm able not to pay much special attention for form-creation,
forms are appearing almost in the same time with content, and idea are
appearing at once with form. I'm working with spaces and don't see any
difference between physical space, mind space of concrete person or public
mind space. The " word of things " exist only in the mind, the same like
abstract intellectual construction. Relationship between thing an image,
between image and symbol, symbol and idea, same real like relationship
between ill caw, public mind, administrative orders, and vegetarian hamburger.
I take thing and hear the song. Border between art and life very symbolic,
you only need to take the life and put into the form. You only need to
take the form and put it into the life. Very simple program. Nothing clear.
AND SPONTANEOUS ACTIVITIES,
IN AREA OF PHYSICAL, AESTETIC, AND PUBLIC MIND SPACES.

media projects, poor english, curator's projects, vodka + oranje 1/4 with
