Interviews with Simon Norfolk (Elsewhere)


General Photography

There’s an excellent interview with Simon Norfolk over at bldgblog: “The thing that pisses me off about so much modern art is that it carries no politics – it has nothing that it wants to say about the world. Without that passion, that political drive, to a piece of work – and I mean politics here very broadly – how can you ever really evaluate it? At the end of the day, I don’t think my politics are very popular right now, but what I would like to hear is what are your politics? Because if you’re not going to tell me, how can we ever possibly have an argument about whether you’re a clever person, your work is great, your work is crap, your art is profound, your art is trivial…?”

Also check out the feature over at lensculture, which also contains samples of a conversation with Simon.
