[ISEA2017] : Artist Statement: Raivo Kelomees — List of Insults

Artist Statement 


“List of Insults” is an artwork involving collaborative participation. Visitors should reach each others hand and at the same time hold the metal tubes on the wall. Videos on the TVs start to work, presenting dialogues between fictional personalities who are discussing art, politics, and poetry. The participants could be two or more than two, but one person is not able to reach the tubes on the wall. In that sense, the single visitor should engage somebody in the exhibition room to be able to experience the artwork.
