Intervention Against Tasteless Wall Decorations in Hotels and Holiday Apartments.(Part 2)
Intervention gegen geschmacklose Wanddekoration in Hotelzimmern und Ferienwohnungen.(Teil 2)
Since 2010 I have secretly been slightly altering tasteless or boring hotel or holiday apartment art whenever I had the chance to.
Appearance of a Woman
Date: July 2012, Location: a holiday apartment somewhere in Vítkovice, Czech Republic.Medium: Acrylic and pen on found decorative print on wood
The holiday apartment had two exactly the same decorative commercial art prints in the bedrooms. With apologies to the original artist, I thought at least one should be more exciting than just flowers and squares. So this is how it looks now:
Text added by me on the back of the artwork:
You have noticed that this decoration is not your average horror experience of cheap so-called art prints, but a more stimulating and interesting mutation thereof. Such bad and soulless pictures cause an allergic reaction with me, which manifests in colours, lines and picturesque alterations.
I hope you can understand and forgive me and that you can find joy and a fresh curiosity and appreciation for true creativity and real thought-provoking , interesting and exciting original art.
Yours sincerely, Imke Rust
