I LAVORI DI BRIAN BELOTT FANNO PARTE DELLE COLLEZIONI PERMANENTI DEL MUSEUM OF MODERN ART DI NEW YORK E DEL WHITNEY MUSEUM OF AMERICAN ART A NEW YORK.

COMBINAZIONE, RICONFIGURAZIONE, CONFUSIONE, OGNUNA GIOCA UN RUOLO VITALE, PERCHE’ BELOTT E’ UN GRANDE ASSEMBLATORE DI COSE. “TUTTO RUOTA ATTORNO ALLA FUSIONE”. NEL CORSO DELLA SUA CARRIERA, HA POSATO IN MODO GIOCOSO OGGETTI DISSIMILI. UNA CAMPAGNA DADAISTA INTENTA A RENDERE LE COSE ORDINARIE IL PIU’ STRANE POSSIBILI, CREANDO UN NUOVO TIPO DI LOGICA DEL TUTTO ILLOGICA. “NON ESSERE PREZIOSO E’ QUALCOSA CHE PENSO DI AVER PROVATO PER TUTTA LA VITA, FACENDO DI PROPOSITO QUALCOSA DI STUPIDO PER VEDERE COME POSSA RIEQUILIBRARSI”. PERCHE’ LO STUPIDO E’ STUPIDO FINCHE’ NON LO E’ PIU’, FINCHE’ NON SI RIEQUILIBRA E INIZIA AD AVERE UN SENSO BIZZARRO, UNA POLITICA DI REVISIONE CONTINUA CHE SEMBRA STRANAMENTE FAMIGLIARE AL PASSAGGIO DELLE PERSONE NELLA VITA. “L’INEVITABILITA’ DELLA DISTRUZIONE CREA PIU’ CREATIVITA'”, C’E’ SICURAMENTE UNA QUALITA’ DISTRUTTIVA E PUNK IN QUESTO PROCESSO TAGLIA E INCOLLA, UNA GIOCOSA MANCANZA DI RISPETTO PER GLI USI PREVISTI DAGLI OGGETTI.
