Artist Statement
In one of the interviews, B. Groys compared the contemporary artist to «a performer in a circus who travels around and shows one the trick everywhere».
«And if he jumps through a flaming hoop or rides a panther, it has nothing to do neither meaningfully nor thematically, nor ideologically with the city or an event where he jumps or rides». I think that my aim as one who deeply connected to Art is to reconcile meaning for the hoop, the panther, the city, the event and, perhaps, the artist.
