Failed, Emerging and Young (2004) is an ongoing compilation of interviews with established and emerging curators and artist-curators including Lisa Le Feuvre, Gavin Wade and Nicolas Bourriaud.
The curator is in the artwork, confronted by the camera and a question that forces them to re-think the use and meaning of the terms ‘failed artist’, ‘emerging artist’ and ‘young artist’. The piece plays with the subjectivity of these terms, possibly used to talk about artists in the beginning of their career, and the absurdity of trying to define them.
A remote control is available for the viewer to use. Viewers have to negotiate between themselves in order to select the interviews they want to see. The sound is played out loud without headphones.
