"Modern art is just SHAPES and COLORS it takes NO SKILL and it's NOT ART" shut up shut tupt you don't get it. That's the POINT you son of bitch. Look at the fuckign shapes and colors. Enjoy the shapes and colors. How do they make you feel. Use your fucking emotions and brain to engage with art instead of expecting everything you see to perfectly cater to your view of the world. "So if I just smear some paint on a wall, that's automatically art?" YES what is so hard to understand. Art is everywhere and you're just too boring and small minded to notice. This artist has gone to the trouble of perfectly selecting out of the infinite number of colors they could have used and carefully arranged those shapes for you. And you don't like it because it doesn't look like a fucking still life of sum fruits. Fuck you and your miniscule attention span and incapabiltiy to reflect on things. I may be a little drunk but I'm right.

Rebecca Horn, Cockatoo Mask, 1973 (stills from Cockfeather Mask Perfomance II)
Horn described using this mask in a performance exploring ideas of sexual availability and intimacy: ‘My face is covered by two intertwined, closed feather wings. The person standing before me touches the feathers delicately, then separates and opens the wings. The spread wings stretch like long bird wings, and softly enclose around [both] our heads. The feather-enclosure isolates our heads from the surrounding environment, and forces us to remain intimately alone, together.’ The use of the mask is deliberately ambiguous and the performance implies a tension between tenderness and aggression.
