in this brilliant new vimeo series by Lernert & Sander, various artists are videotaped as they attempt to explain their work to their parents. personally i couldn’t imagine a more impossible task, (besides trying to tell all of you just what my parents are like and why this would be so extremely difficult for me), and although the majority of these videos don’t depict too much of a complete misunderstanding, there is still the running theme of confusion and misinterpretation that we would all suspect. after viewing them all, (there’s five episodes that i know of), i found myself wondering why? is art really that difficult to understand? comments..?
