Letting go of love

Finding furor and fury

But seeing relieving faces

Is rebelieving in the brightness of bonding

Sampling

Post-busy

Feeling like laying

One mission accomplished

A lot still lies ahead

The Artist is Present

There is a clear recognition from the practicing artists, that celebrity is a power in society. There is religious-spiritual power. There is economic power. There is political power. And there is the power of the media. Artists deal with this, sometimes directly, sometimes indirectly, but it’s a statement.

But do you see the difference, Marina? You had to be the subject, the driver, the pilot, the author and you became the object; it’s a huge change. That perhaps is the description of what celebrity is: the balance between being a subject and an object.
