Grosz notions worth intertwining with Butlerian logic

Thoughts to hold and muddle over for their ring of relevance:

What distinguish the arts from other forms of cultural production are the ways in which artistic production merges with, intensify and externalize, monumentalizes, SENSATIONS…

Art enables matter to become expressive, to not just satisfy but to intensify–to resonate and become more than itself. This is not to say art is without conception; simply that concepts are by-products or effects rather than the very material of art…

Art hijacks survival impulse and transforms them though the vagaries and intensifications posed by sexuality, deranging them into a new order, a new practices.

-Elizabeth Grosz, Chaos, Territory, Art… (2008: 13)
