“Art is an activity consisting in producing relationships with the world with the help of signs, forms, actions and objects”
“Today’s artist appears as an operator of signs, modelling production structures so as to provide significant doubles. As entrepreneur/politician/director. The more common denominator shared by all artists is that they show something. The act of showing suffices to define the artist, be it a representation or a designation.” ~ Nicolas Bourriaud.1
