Sirine Fattouh

Good/Bad Artist


130 x 21 cm

Edition of 5 + 1 AP


What makes an artist ‘good’ or ‘bad’? And, more importantly, who gets to decide? Fattouh’s neon sculpture Good/Bad Artist gets to grips with these pressing questions, challenging our perception and experience of art. To what extent do cultural institutions give legitimacy to artists and the works they produce? What role does the art market play in establishing an artist’s (net) worth? Fattouh asks us to reflect on these questions, which remain largely unanswered.
