No distance
The action “No distance. One work – a hundred interpretations” was carried out in Rome at the end of 2007. Very important to me was the idea of Art as a single process, in which there are no divisions into time and stylistic sections and styles, on which contemporary art criticism has been insisting for so long. For the artist, only the single process of creation exists, which is indivisible into segments, definitions and trends. Everything in this process is based on associations, reminiscences, momentary feelings. And the presence of absurd ideas and concepts just underlines the logic of the creative law – only the abyss of the personal may become society’s and culture’s collective unconscious, which is fundamentally indivisible.
