The Art Song Collection
In her latest artist book, annette hollywood plays with and recreates popular love song LP covers by replacing the commonly used word "love" with "art." In doing so, annette hollywood draws connections between the popular music and art industry. annette hollywood has been ironically confronting the mechanics and paradoxes of the art market for years now. The love song, perhaps one of the last existential genres that openly relies on emotionality and pathos, forms the raw material for the work. Its' emotions are here translated to art, captured in slices as thin as the records themselves, carefully kept behind glass and offered as a consumable mass commodity in the jukebox.
