Day Three And Naturally The Abuse Incurred For Being Blatantly Inauthentic Is Coming On Like Thick Meaty Paste...

The Artist Notes:
"In A Queer Fashion, The Show Seems Immersed Unreachably Deep Under Whorling Night Water?"

Spaz pop, trash and sacred creativity forgotten and buried by our new prefabric pseudo-sophisticated society?

Post modern artists were bound by the market. The pressure to produce only what would sell. Art had become corrupted by the necessity for art to pose as a marketable commodity. Mass production and the internet has ended all that and the Postpost modern artist is set free. Free from the pressure to sell, because there is no longer a market? Would this in an ordinary sense mean the extinction of artists? The answer is no. How can you remove creativity from a creative being. A being dependent on thought and the intellect. In a political right leaning phase of New Zealand history, it is difficult to imagine that thought and the intellect could still matter? And also that thought and the intellect are not merely modern luxuries that are best washed away in the light of brutal economic Darwinism. Main center galleries will be forced to evolve, to ignore the duty of displaying truly sophisticated art and to reposition themselves, to import and stock their gallery walls with less expensive commercially moderate mass produced material. Especially but not moreso even to consider the demand in which the Canterbury rebuild will produce. Now boxed art designed for the new "Edwardscissorhand-neighbourhoods" of the new earthquake regulated building codes. The galleries have leases to pay. They cannot afford to test the cultural mood.
Away from New Zealand and to the wider western world, it is politically polarized. You could even evaluate that perhaps world war three is not summarized as once thought West against East. Instead the war is within our civilization's own walls, as the world creeps toward becoming a global tribe. Right against Left. The Tea Party verses Obama. Bread and butter verses education. Economic survival verses social well being...
In New Zealand the universities are proposed to guide students away from so called impractical studies. Artists are caught up in the battle, downtrodden and treated as societal dross. In search of philosophical answers one must place oneself in new experiences and if possible a new outlook. Not only artists must do this. Antagonist Freak Show is a social experiment intended for the enrichment of thought and contemplation for universal cultural direction.

You can sometimes learn more about a performance by considering the material that was excuded? For the only real limitation that Antagonist Freak Show faced is sensitivity to the degree of darkness and cyber-freakism, because what is ok on the internet is not necessarily ok in the real world?

Excluded material; 'The creepy green hand' and 'Subjugated elves on either side of the central model', although published in Catalonia see;
