Authenticity & The Camp

“I apologise if some point has been missed on my part, but authenticity is all there is left in the world: no good, no bad, just other. Not even an objective reality. Just a falsehood presented authentically, like Ezra Miller carrying his own face.”
“That, combined with a Baconerial disease of ideology, left me feeling quite empty when I found all my other fellow artists (apart from a couple) only made art that was easy to understand, about a simple historic moment of their life, in a way, they would announce proudly, was relatable.”
“Better than that, it’s honest. Better still, it’s authentic. I can feel through the pages or the canvas or the music, a real vibration, something from core to core.”
“Authenticity — the zen bloom of the self — comes from fighting something far deeper.”
