An artist should not fall in love with another artist.
A poet should not fall in love with another poet.
Play it safe. It’s easier that way.
Kiss people who can’t understand why you cry when the sun sets,
who think it is because you’re afraid of the dark.
David Hammons - Bli-zaard Ball Sale (1983)
"The photos portraying Hammons with his neatly arranged rows of snowballs for sale are probably the most frequently reproduced images in the artist’s oeuvre. The piece has become iconic, the single ephemeral work – a work that is essentially about ephemerality – that has come to stand for his entire practice.”
