I don’t know Stathis Gourgouris – but I know one of his very best friends – who sent this to me yesterday.
“Much will be written about this shocking event and much nostalgia to be expected. I suggest we listen very carefully to Blackstar, the last artwork to be created by this extraordinary man, which is the epitome of late-style performativity. It’s all there — all that he has done, and yet nothing like he has ever done before. The gesture of finishing a great artwork and then letting life finish right afterward is a magnificent lesson in coming to terms with finitude — of self, of time, of matter.”
