Ed Young's Diary (from the Daily ArtHeat at the Joburg Art Fair)
Wednesday, March 31, 2010
I spent the most beautiful night after my murder under the Grolsch Fluid. But as the Spiritus Mundi slips into my soul and I slowly begin to realize that I had complete access to all of the art world’s thoughts. Blackman: “I realize that an art work’s value is directly relational to the looks of the gallery’s gallerina and that all things considered that made Art South Africa the most valuable work at the fair’. Linda Stupart: ‘I am exactly like Ed Young’. Sloon: ‘ART HEAT, ART HEAT, ART HEAT, EDIT ART HEAT or if I suck my third left molar all week I will have better thoughts’. Justin Rhodes: ‘I hate Art Heat’. Art Heat: ‘We love Justin Rhodes’. Baylon Sandri: ‘I am the gallerist with the hottest wife because Jonathan Garnham is not here.’ Joao: ‘Why, why, why, god oh why’. Wayne Barker: ‘If I got a chin strap for my hat I could actually sleep in it without it falling off.’ It is all super boring and my soul begins to die and my body comes alive.
