Matthew Keable statement, by Matthew
Art should be made to assimilate communities. It should wrap around them like a rhizomorph, form like cancer, or profile like Dachau, and do so as a rebellion against those negative agencies that inform it. My project is to do just this - to piss off, confuse, decimate, invade, and above all, to get people to interact and laugh along with ridiculous, broken systems. The child who uses his imagination to turn his bike into an ice cream machine is in far better psychological condition than the logical adult who feels he can change the world.
this is getting there...i'm not sure 'interact and laugh along' is effective...which assumes your art is devoid of more interesting content. what you do in your art is to lift viewers into an aerial view of the conformist, regulated, and dysfunctional systems they create/participate in.
