Last week, Marianne and I went to the Whitney Biennial, as is our custom once every other year. It struck me that a lot of the art was about process rather than a finished product. Case in point was what seemed to be the most popular piece, Dawn Kasper's installation, "This Could Be Something If I Let It." Which consists of her art studio, inside which she lives and works for all the hours the Whitney is open.
When I drifted by, Ms Kasper was getting her hair cut and chatting with museum-goers. "Where are you from? Oh, I have a cousin who lives near there," sort of thing. There was a bit of a crowd, and they were all clearly enthralled.
Afterward, Marianne said, "It's a magician's lair. I'd be a lot more impressed if I didn't already live in one."
