The limit of art is, for some artists, the modus operandi of their practice. The margin becomes the center, so to speak. However, it can sometimes be difficult, even for the most erudite, to adequately judge a work of art or measure the relevance - present and future - of an artist.
Especially when the project merges with simple and the banalities of everyday life. Before you can even evaluate the work ... your first task is to find it! In addition, the problem of aesthetic judgment is not only that of taste, or even the persistent tension between the subjective and the objective. It is also a problem of sensitivity, methodology, context and knowledge.
