It’s better to be an art object than to be an artist,
better to be an art object than to be a curator,
better to be a curator than to be an artist,
better to be an artist than to be a curator.
Why curators want to become artists?
Because they think is a cool idea.
Thierry De Duve on the Rise of the Art in General System, states, "society bestows honors on certain human activities and not on others, and there is not society on earth (so far) that does not salute art and artists with mark of honor."
It is possible that to seem-it is to be,
As the sun is something seeming and it is.
The sun is an example. What it seems
It is and in such seeming all things are.
