  • Space is only noise if you can see
    Created 2011, revisited 2012.
    With Aurél Baranyai.

     I think one of my attempts here (again) was to somehow eliminate meaning or depth - which still seems to be a kind of an obligatory attribute of the artwork. The status of art is a context that suggests that there is something "behind the rabbit", something that you cannot see. In some cases I find this to be unfortunate. Sometimes it is the rabbit.
    Of course at the same time these pictures are a very clear statement of my dedication for the magical, the exciting, ecstatic, wondrous aspects of reality. They are clearly not true, not real on an immediate level - they refer to reality as i feel about it.

    "But certainly for the present age, which prefers the sign to the thing signified, the copy to the original, representation to reality, the appearance to the essence...illusion only is sacred, truth profane. Nay, sacredness is held to be enhanced in proportion as truth decreases and illusion increases, so that the highest degree of illusion comes to be the highest degree of sacredness." (Feuerbach, Preface to the second edition of The Essence of Christianity, in: Society Of The Spectacle, Guy Debord, Black Red, Detroit 1983)

    I borrowed the title from a Nicolas Jaar song.
