Is Art running out of Ideas? Artists forced to explain modern art

(…)
Perhaps you feel that, just by itself, [Martin Creed’s work #850] doesn’t. But don’t walk away yet. Try another artistic gambit. Go for the big one. Try asking: what does it mean? What’s it about? Ah, now we’re talking. At any rate, Tate Britain is talking, and talking fast.

As if to forestall any possible doubts, their publicity goes into interpretative overdrive. “Work No. 850 is about the purest expression of human vitality,” it says. “This investigation into the body celebrates physicality and the human spirit, the constant ebb and flow of nature.”

Wow! In 30 words, the work is packed with meaning. How could you have missed it?
