tuesday photo challenge – rest

Frank … want us to get our head around theme/topic “rest”. My life should be full of it because took my retirement at 61 … today I don’t have a clue how I had time to work before April 2009.

But I’m going outside that box … and share some awesome art with you …. you don’t have to like clowns to enjoy an exhibition like this

I ‘m not a fan of clowns as such … more than the ones that work on hospital wards with sick children, they truly make a difference every day … and of course, the sophisticated ones that come with Cirque du Soleil.

“Clowns work as well as aspirin, 
but twice as fast.”
Groucho Marx

“A Clown is an angel with a red nose.”
J.T. “Bubba” Sykes

Swizz artist Ugo Rondinone’s exhibition. Vocabulary Of Solitude, at Arken Museum of Modern Art,  Ishøj in Denmark – which I visit in May 2018. One of the most amazing art exhibitions I ever been to.

“To truly laugh, you must be able to
take your pain and play with it!”
Charlie Chaplin

“Vocabulary of solitude” is a portrait of a single person’s day represented in 45 acts. They are individually titled in the present tense: be. breathe. sleep. dream. wake. rise. sit. hear. look. think. stand. walk. pee. shower. dress. drink. fart. shit. read. laugh. cook. smell. taste. eat. clean. write. daydream. remember. cry. nap. touch. feel. moan. enjoy. float. love. hope. wish. sing. dance. fall. curse. yawn. undress. lie.

Each passive clown is a stand-in for one of these actions. Together they form an endless 24-hour loop.

“A clown sees life simply,
without complications.”
George Bishop

    • Thank you so much … I like some clowns, but they have to be a bit sophisticated – and I love the clowns that work on hospitals with sick children – what a difference they make (I will add that to my post -THANKS). It was an amazing show.
