When is art just ... tape on a wall?!

http://www.ikon-gallery.co.uk/ - Matias Faldbakken, Shocked into abstraction ... or, tape on a wall, a burned-out car and some black spray-paint. Er ... and that was it. You had to read the notes to get the sense: in particular;
"Here I wanted to make a kind of painting that was really easy to pass by, one that tells us, "move on, there's nothing to see here"."* Quite.
