Agus Suwage is Still Crazy After All These Years

Agus Suwage has his retrospective solo exhibition 'Still Crazy After All These Years' in Jogja National Museum. In October a selection of this exhibition will be shown at Selasar Sunaryo Art Space in Bandung. Read here and here for reviews. And here my favorite Agus Suwage painting.

The title - 'Still Crazy After All These Years' - is rather odd though. As long as you can claim to be crazy, then you are actually not crazy. When you are in fact crazy - or: lost your mind - you have no longer the judgment to make that call, then you simply lack the ability to see the difference between sane and insane.
