the stance of art is "predicated on independence and an aversion to reciprocal complicity. And when we realize that emergence within a field of reciprocal complicity is the source of all consciousness, all sociality, all economics, or life itself– then what?"
Art isn't practiced, but becomes a medium for another practice altogether. Could the "art" then, exist in relation to consciousness, sociality, economics and life itself, as a medium of apophasis? It is only through art that one is then able to present the shortcomings of consciousness, sociality, economics and life itself, by portraying subjects which don't point to any of these things.
