The Value of Art
A picture is worth 50 words, not 49 or 51.
A multicultural international peripatetic festival
From outsider art to conceptual art, all creative practice has a VALUE
invested in it, thus making the process or end result a luxury good.
The festival considers how art practice is affected by the idea that
the items created are defective luxury goods.
The free festival includes film, performance, painting, photography,
sculpture, ceramics, drawing, and music, each piece with a 50 word
text on the value of art.

"A Jew in Between"
The installation is set in two parts consisting of a
world juxtaposing Judaism with debauchery. Sanctity
and holy innocence is perhaps being perverted by sex
and filth, where one is caught between the balance
of something beautiful and something unholy one
might also find the holy distasteful too. The
aesthetics of the pieces may show that they are made
from cheap recycled material and the artist stresses
the metaphor on religion that perhaps it is
something material, holy, made from unholy and that
beautiful things are perhaps man made from the
things we neglect and normally throw away.
It is autobiographical of the artist's orthodox
Jewish upbringing and rebelling, his feelings
towards religion and the new perversions of life
outside the bubble neither for, nor against either,
but constantly torn between two worlds and always
left hanging in the balance.
