An Ode til π
”An Ode til π, a three dimentional wooden relief. Recycled materials to resonate withspirit of our time. A homage to the ratio between a circle's circumference and its diameter, 22:7. Or 3,14159265358979323846264338327950288497169399375105820974944 etc. etc. for all eternity, amen. How Beautiful!
If an artist begins to talk about his work or himself, he disempowers the viewer. Perhaps instead he should have written a short story or read outloud his psychiatric journal. Or perhaps denigrate Picasso or become a barker for Circus Fatman? Or have written estate agent poetry for the weekly newspaper's house ads? Or have become an art critic? Yes, bingo, an art critic!
Who can help? That would be Johan Wolfgang von Goethe, who in the midst of his lifelong romantic babbling about everything and nothing suddenly said the words that should be carved in granite or bent in neon above the entrance to every art school : BILDE KÛNSTLER, REDE NICHT.” – Jørgen Minor
Jørgen Minor was born and raised on Langeland. As a visual artist he works with both sculpture and graphic. In 1982 he published his first novel "Silence is Golden", and has since published a number of books , articles and short stories etc.. Amongst them is the novel for young adults The Merchants Boy which is set in Rudkøbing in the 1600s.
