On Gods, Grammar and Nonsense: Gary Kibbins' Grammar and Not-Grammar: Selected Scripts and Essays

by Earl Miller

Fuse, 2006, v. 29, no. 3, pp. 36-38

Miller discusses Kibbins' collection of essays, film, and video scripts in terms of the analysis and anti-hermetic definition of current "experimental" art, and Kibbins' concept of nonsense in art as a rational choice which functions to sidestep interpretation. Miller posits that art which makes use of non-contextualized, nonsensical references from seemingly incompatible sources can be extremely provocative if granted a politically aware audience where these references may serve as signifiers to further discourse.
