Lost in the world of Art - Mark Wallinger

The clip of the video above is a shorter version of Mark Wallinger's work. He is the winner of the Turner Prize for 2007. What can be induced is that the artist has some concern over the over population of humans, which includes himself. The Bear portrayed in costume is somewhat lost in the world of man. A concept that questions the purpose of Art, if there is any the need for it. Only you can decide from these two enactments of the massive omnivorous mammal.

Below - Traditional Carnival characters of a dancing Bear from Trinidad and Tobago. Please note the manner in which the masquerader skims across the ground.
