Interview with the artist
Laurettes studio is what could be called the commercial public space: the supermarket, the press, television, etc., in short, any zone where interest or need is marketed…
(…) "I feel like any word added to "art" is just usually unnecessary sub categories (i.e Young British Art, video art, social art, performance art, body art, land art, fax art, eat art, noodle art etc…and maybe why not still to come spaceship art or iPod art! Who knows? The list is endless…). The point according to me is more whether it is interesting art or not, whether it is relevant art or not.
