An Irreverent Goodbye Of Sorts / by Kasey Smith

BURIAL SERVICE FROM THE BOOK OF COMMON ART PRAYER

In sure and certain hope of inclusion in the permanent collection and 15 million years remembrance through our Lord Andy Warhol, we commend to Almighty MOMA our art piece the Tsarevich Fabergé Egg Seed Bomb; and we commit this art piece to the list of lost artworks; paint to paint; egg shell to egg shell; poppy seed to poppy seed. Artforum bless him and keep him, Artforum make his pages to shine upon him and be gracious unto him and give him good reviews. Amen.

I’ve been working on a new series of egg-based seed bombs painted to look like Imperial Faberge Eggs. This mid-level art catastrophe was to be the Tsarevich Egg.

Rest in pieces little Faberge Seed Bomb. I’ll see you on the other side of the art portfolio.
