For decades David Hammons consciously avoided the attention of critics, galleries, and museums. Meanwhile he preferred “doing things in the street.” In 1997 I visited Jack Tilton Gallery in New York. At the back office ‘hidden’ on the top of a cupboard an evocative elephant’s dung decorated with beads and the like was put there ‘for sale’, i.e. not really fanatically, so to say. Nowadays David Hammons’ works are highly estimated and part of What’s on in the arts. KvG
