John Zaklikowski - 'Trampoline'

The phenomenally gifted and influential artist Joseph Beuys insisted that everyone is an artist and that everything we make and do is art. Few people actually believe this and neither do I. On the other hand, like many of his generation, Beuys struggled to define the difference between an object and an art object and the nature of the space that each occupies. In fancy language, it's the problem of "the ontological status" of the art object. It's a problem that doesn't go away.
