Unexplainable valorization of the weird and the absurd

One must have passed through hundreds of art shows while wandering around the Mandi House roundabout unendingly, and understandably, wondered at a few remarkable pieces once in a while, trying to memorize certain enticing curves and lines with the forlorn thought of never ever having another chance of admiring it again. While the mischievous feeling that others too don’t understand nor are able to possess, lingers, art remains for ever an enigma. More so, because of the unexplainable valorization of the weird and the absurd in the name of abstract at the cost of the narrative. Not surprisingly, The Economic Times does art promotion these days by carrying whatever parody of what used to be an art review. [TNM]
