THE ECCENTRICITIES OF ART
by Sana Qazi

artists shit triple Art is a personal form of expression that is subject to the individual. Whether an emotion, a face, or an abstract, the piece emanates from the artist; what is seen is what the artist sees. The art can then only be appreciated if the viewer can relate to the work as the artist has depicted it. Due to that reason what may seem as an exemplary work by one may be seen as a complete waste of space by another. In other words, the worth of the art is in the beholder.

More often than not, people are quite astonished when they see others purchasing pieces that range from hundreds to thousands of dollars simply because they feel that the work is nothing extraordinary and doesn’t seem to be a striking piece of art, or art at all. In 1961 Piero Manzoni displayed his work Artist’s Shit, which both astonished and striked many if not all. The work is a collection of 90 tin cans which are labeled “Artist’s Shit, content 30 gr., freshly preserved, produced and tinned in May 1961”#. Manzoni’s piece is said to have revolutionized art; what was literally an artist’s shit, became the artist’s art.
