Lecture "Re-Modelling Art“

“/…/ It used to be the case that one of the artist’s natural roles involved projecting an image of what art was sup- posed to be. Artists embodied the image people had of them; which meant that they were seen as not being like other people. This was the case, for example, with Van Gogh, the first of the visionary artists. And it was also the image that Jackson Pollock represented, for a time. As the objects created by artists became more and more abstract – and more intimately individual – the image they projected of themselves took on more and more importance.

But the abstract character of art has ceased to be compensated for by a particular image that sets apart the kinds of artist who, like Warhol and his successors, identify themselves as «entrepreneurs», and who have made their public persona a part of their stock in trade."

„Finger print(s)“
Long process of monotonous work, placing one tiny particle of bone china after the other, step by step 'finger printing' the faces of my loved ones. It's a reflection, a sacrifice, a way of searching for answers.
