Lock yourself in your room, and come out as beautiful as you are. Don't give in to all those voices that are telling you about past failures, killing you before you've had your chance to live, they're whispering, and you cannot win as long as you're listening.Raison d'ętre
Art that interests me has much in common with and/or belongs to resistance. It must challenge our preconceptions, disrupt our thoughts; it is outside the norms, outside the law, against bourgeois order; it is not there to cradle us, to reinforce our comfort, to serve up again what we already know. It must take risks, at the risk of not being immediately accepted or acceptable. It is deviant, and in itself a social project. I am continuously enticed to combine dissimilar stylistic genres of art and shatter the hard and fast rules of the atrocious pursued ideology. Art is mediated in ways specific to its modes of signification. This can be enabling or disabling –- limits are continuously set; but seldom broken.
