The depicted steel sculpture is a replica of my own penis, and also a symbol of my two sided feeling about art. The sculpture is photographed on a black background to comment in a typical luxury brand marketing way. On one side I feel it is stupid, worthless and just 'fucking' the people when they naively are craving life content. On the other side art is the only alternative to despair, as it can offer endless joy and inspiration to all the scared little people on a little blue planet in a big dark universe. Conclusion: YOU YOURSELF MUST DECIDE WHAT ART IS - NOT THE SYSTEM - DECIDE YOU IS FUCKING WHO???

Kristian von Hornsleth (Born in 1963)  is a famous danish artist.
Hornsleth is a student from Herlufsholm Boarding school and was later educated at the School of Architecture.
There seems to be at least two contradicting approaches in the work of Hornsleth. Firstly his confrontational navigation through contemporary culture built on his own philosophy which he calls Futilism, making one capable of using futility as such in a most constructive way. Secondly his manic insisting of developing a symbolic representation of his own name, ‘Hornsleth’, emblazoned across countless works he's produced that now reach out all over  Denmark and around the world. The word is ‘Hornsleth’, questioning the beauty of manipulation in an often countercultural manner and further questioning if the publicity in itself is more important than the products it endorses, now spreading from branding Lamborghini's to sculptures, provocative photographs, and people themselves. Where does all this leave the contemporary person?

Pumped up prices and uppity arrogance

- All gone

The artworld is broken
– we're fixing it!
