“i wish to disrupt...///
that is my motivation. not as a negating act. as a will to create a space for a pause. to reconsider all the given organization systems for values. maybe they encompass the best humanity has found, maybe they encompass the worst (most probably the terms “best” and “worst” are dated). i wish for whatever systems that are used, to be chosen, and re-chosen, day and day again. they should prove their relevance each passing day.
i wish to look at the world around me, extracting from the reality i perceive the organizational systems i need to regulate it.
this is something i can identify in my practice and in my research as a human being functioning in a social fabric. i cannot separate it from my practice as an artist, i can only add to it the more specific threads i can identify in my artistic activity. threads that will again lead back to my ongoing research – how to live as a person amongst people.”
