Y Tho

Textual contemporary art interpretation is heavily practiced in art scene. Yet

this role is still dominated by critics and curators. How it's delivered is largely

based on academic point of view. Internet meme finally raised its bar by using

images of contemporary artworks. Its captions translate artworks liberally,

away from the initial context. Art is now also interpreted as the meanings of

daily life. Y Tho is an attempt to archive internet meme with contemporary art

images as its appropriated visual element. At the same time, this work also

experiments by generating same meme, but derived from texts written by

actual curator or critics.
