The Inner Passage

In: Exh. cat. The Search Within. Art between Implosion and Explosion (Geras, New Delhi: Österreichisch-Indische Gesellschaft, 1998), p. 76.

Travel­ling is connected with life. Every artwork is some­t­hing like an odyssey. The state between departure and arrival is a possibility of finding new view-points through "seeing differ­ently"; - in order to come to a place which is actually utopian and without geography.

 Everyt­hing is in flux: in this way the suppressed doesn`t put up with us suppressing it and catches up with us again at night.

Between "waking and dreaming" we can learn "seeing", and recog­nise "a tomorrow" in the future.
