Abstract

WALKING ART

CONTEMPORARY JOBS FOR THE CONTEMPORARY WORLD · ACCORDING TO THE
NEEDS OF TODAY · A DOG WALKER POSTS ITS SERVICES ON ELECTRICITY POSTS ·
$20 DOLLARS AN HOUR IT SAYS AND A PHONE NUMBER THAT YOU TEAR FROM
THE POST AND INTO YOUR POCKET · TAKING OUT THE LAUNDRY CLOTHES · YOU
FIND THE PHONE NUMBER HAS DISAPPEARED · A WET CRUMPLED LITTLE PAPER
IS ALL THAT REMAINS ·
ART WORKS ARE PRODUCED · WE LEAVE THEM AT HOME OR AT
THE BACK OF A SHELF · ART WORKS GET HANGED · SOME TIMES WE PRODUCE
THINGS · ART WORKS · THE THINGS WE PRODUCE HANG IN THERE · IN SILENCE ·
WAITING TO BE SEEN · SOMETIMES THEY ARE HAPPY JUST TO EXIST · THEY GET
FORGOTTEN · WAITING FOR A GALLERY OR AN EXHIBITION TO CALL THEM · SOME
TIMES THEY ARE JUST HAPPY TO EXIST · WE HANG IN THERE ·

NO MORE WAITING FOR THE IMPORTANT PERSON TO CALL · TAKE THE MATTER
INTO YOUR OWN HANDS · ART IS BORED · WHAT IF I TAKE IT FOR A WALK? ·
SERIOUSLY · NO MORE GALLERY · WHAT IF I TAKE IT FOR A WALK · INTO THE
STREET · WHERE EVERYONE OUT THERE CAN SEE IT · SERIOUSLY · JUST TAKING A
STROLL · THE NEW ART WORLD IS CALLED STREET · THE NEW WALL IS A DOLLY ·
NO MORE NAILS · NO MORE ANNOYING WHOLES ON THE WALLS OF THE RECENTLY
PAINTED WALLS · THE NEW ART SPACE NEEDS NO SPACE · NO MORE BIG FEES ·
AND CERTAINLY FOR SURE · NO MORE FUTILE CALLS FOR SUBMISSIONS NOR
PROPOSALS TO SEND ·

A SIMPLE FACEBOOK POST MAKES THE JOB · PEOPLE RESPOND
WITH A ‘WALK THIS ONE’ SELF-MADE MEME · AN INSTANTLY SELF-CURATED
ENVIRONMENT · MORE RAPIDLY THAN NOT · THE ARTWORK MATERIALITY IS PUT
INTO QUESTION · WHAT IF THE PIECE IS NON-MATERIAL · A PIECE TO BE ENACTED
RATHER THAN CARRIED · WHAT IF THE PIECE IS MUSIC · WHAT IF THE PIECE IS AN
ART MAGAZINE FROM LAST YEAR · WHAT IF YOU WALK NOT THE PIECE BUT THE
REJECTED PIECES OF THE PIECE · WHAT IF THE ART PIECE IS THE WALK?

EACH ART WORK WILL REQUIRE A TAILORED STROLL · EACH ART WORK ITS OWN
ALLIES · EACH ART WORK ITS OWN ROUTE · ALL OF THIS WITH THE PROOF · THE
PROOF OF THE WALK · WE WILL MAKE A GIF OF IT · GIFT THE GIF · SO IT PROVES
THE WALK · WE TOOK IT TO THE PARK · WE TOOK IT TO THE BAR · YOU SEE · BIKE
RIDE IS INCLUDED · OUT OF THE ISLAND TERRITORIES? WHY NOT? · MAKE IT
SLIDE · MAKE IT SWING · MAKE IT SIT · MAKE IT SEE THE WORLD · MAKE IT
BREATH THE CITY’S AIR · LET’S FEED THE WORLD’S STOMACH WITH ART · LET’S
FEED THE ART’S STOMACH THE WORLD · TAKE IT WITH YOU · NO MORE TEARS OF
SALTED DUST · NO MORE ANGUISH FOR YOUR ART · LET THE ART SEE(D) THE
WORLD · LET THE WORLD SEA ART · WE WILL TAKE IT FOR A RIDE ·
ACCOMPAINED BY THE PERFECTLY HARMONIZED SEAGULL’S CONSTANT CHANTS ·
WE WILL TAKE IT FOR A WELL DESERVED WALK · NO MORE ART IS BORED · NO
MORE COMPLAINS FOR WHAT’S TO COME ·
SO WHAT HAPPENED? · THIS HAPPENED · RAUL’S SCULPTO-PAINTING TO THE PARK · SHANIE’S ART WORK TO THE BAR · PHILLIPE’S INSTINCTIVE SCULPTURE CREATURE TO THE MARKET TO BUY A LOBSTER MAYRA’S CHOREOGRAPHY TO THE MIES VAN DER ROHE GAS STATION IN NUN’S
ISLAND · CHLOE’S SKY REMANENTS WELL FRAMED PAINTING WITH GLOVES TO AN
IN-THE- TRUNK-LET’S- PUT-IT- TO-SLEEP CAR RIDE · NANCY’S SPIFFY MOVES ART
MAGAZINE TO A BIKE RIDE IN ST. CATHERINE STREET NEXT TO ALL THE
RECYCLED GARBAGE FROM THE BIG STORES · RAMONA’S THOUGHT ON BORING
REPETITION SOMEWHERE IN BETWEEN · FELIPE’S MUSIC PIECE TO A LIVING ROOM
NON-PERFORMED TABLEAUX OF FALLEN BODIES AND FALLING FLYING CARDS
AND TO A SOMETHING ELSE TO BE ANOUNCED · TO BE ANOUNCED · FINALLY ·
ERIN’S THREADWAYS MOST REJECTED THREADS TO A CONVERSATION ON
LEFTOVERS AND MOVING GEOGRAPHIES OF PULLING OUT AND GETTING BACK IN
AND SOME TIMES ON NOT MAKING IT BACK · DO WE EVER GO BACK? · MONTREAL ·
2016 · IT IS MAY AND IT IS JUNE · TIME HAS PASSED AND THIS HAS TOO ·
