“I create my works around a number of complementary notions such as: CHANCE, ORDER, ITERABILITY, TEMPORARINESS. I take advantage of apparent opposites in the field of art, where the impossible becomes everyday practice, and frequently the very process of creation of and reflection on a project proves more important than the final result. All of my works are based on my personal experience and observations, histories and phobias. I am neither involved nor wish to be involved in art that is ‘objective’ as to content and neutral as to form. It is my current interests that instinctively foster what I do. No matter whether I write or edit books or am active in larger-scale projects in open spaces, each action stems from personal experience, frequently originating back in childhood. Remembering (individual as well as ‘collective’ memory) is not merely a re-experience of the past, but first of all the experience of the present. I am not after adopting a particular stand or being involved in politics as an artist. I believe that the most vital matters can be spoken about in a simple language, and in order to do this, one needs to avoid pathos and be honest.”
