Art Theft ?

leave a comment »

This art is so utilitarian, such a mundane readymade, that it is made almost completely worthless when removed from the gallery. The thief must have been a fan/artist.

This theft is like an anonymous art work that daringly reveals (for art’s sake) the ridiculous lack of ‘artfullness’ in contemporary art aesthetics. The art was likely restored to its original state by a quick 15 dollar home depot trip.
