art is dead.
conceptually deprived of its obligation to exist.
empty argumentations. useless disquisitions. despairing gibberish.
the artist will never die.
the artist is he/she who cannot do anything else but what he/she does:
to think per abstraction and to express abstraction with whatever he/she finds around him/her.
the outsider, not for choice but in spirit.
the person who isnt here or there.
- the importance of sdefinition:
we live in the future, where everything has already been said and done;
sometimes not experienced.
- the importance of the subtraction:
we live in the future, where the superfluous goes beyond the surplus value.
- the importance of the imperfection:
we live in the future, where the decorative (perfection) has smeared
state of incessant imperfection
nothing lasts, nothing is complete, nothing is perfect.
as in wabi-sabi [in kanji: (wabi) (sabi)], the Japanese aesthetics based on the transience of all things,
which in turns derives from the Buddhist doctrine of anitya (Sanskrit, Japanese, mujō), which means impermanence.
beauty is imperfect, impermanent and incomplete.
the artistic product is that, which has been crafted, as well as that, which the artistic gesture has not accomplished.
and exactly this lack, this absence, is whats important.
to tell a mental path is not interesting; maybe, his own mental paths in front of a cup of coffee.
an artistic product is made of contingencies, chance, true/centratura.
it is different to anyone: you like it or not, it tells you something or lets you cold. it makes you angry. it provokes.
it gives you enthusiasm. he does not affect you. it is. it has its own life. it does not belong to the artist anymore.
simplicity. sincerity. calmness. inexhaustibility. essentiality. asymmetry.
spirituality. abstraction. degradability. ambiguity.
private yet social.

WHY THE NAKED BODY?
We are not interested in the use of [the] naked body as provocation.
The naked body evoke simplicity, spontaneity. The naked body in its nudity is sincere. In our work, the expression of nudity, contrary to what it could seems, is an ultimate attempt to recovery. Its a disguise [of the absurd]. Its a way to protect oneself, laying down the arms in advance/a priori. Its the ultimate and profound way to hide in the depth of one own self, in an loneliness past redemption. The nude body is a sophisticated abyss of personae.
The nude body allows an existentialist analysis of the object.
The rest is always of sociological character.
The naked body is essential.
Why the obsessive use of the back? Whos the figure facing backwards?
The Back. The largest surface of the body. Mournful. The back, my answer to the world/society. What you can see of me. The writing of a life on the back. A surface to engrave.
Not showing. Concealing oneself, caught up armless, helpless, naked.
Why holding on to?
Clinging on to oneself, to a reason to live, to our own mystifications, to our own mistakes, to our own fears. Clinging on to, not to be eradicated, evicted, not to be sucked up in the darkness of the universe, not to be swallowed up by the social adventures, by the bureaucrats, by the professors.
