Somebody sent me this funny photo of Navid Nuur:
I stood in front of a bookshop hanging my head and carrying a sandwich board that read AT THIS BOOKSHOP I HAVE BEEN STEALING CONCEPTS FOR MY OWN ART. I AM A THIEF NOT AN ARTIST. I wanted the sandwich board to evoke the ways in which artists borrow ideas from other artists and disciplines.
His further explanation for the piece (like most bullshitty artist statements) is less interesting than the photo, but if you want, you can read that here.
