Cup on the Wall / Empty Wall, published in Neveroddoreven
Editors: Nienke Terpsma and Jack Henrie Fisher

About this work:

This publication is addressed as an independent counterpart to the exhibition of the same name, rather than as a conventional catalogue. It consists of photographed objects and artworks that the artists pointed out as being important for their practice. This deictic premise was the subsequent starting point for a conversation between the editors and the artists.
           I chose the oversized image of a cup as a counterstatement to the film, The Cup, in which "the cup" never appears as an image, but is communicated through a conversation. In this case, the image triggered the conversation, though only after an iconoclastic action, after dismantling the image we arrived at the very core of my research.

EXCERPT FROM THE PUBLISHED TEXT:

(…) I want an image of how they imagine that
        they inhabit the body. I want them to tell
        me how they think, if they do inhabit the
        body. Am I like a soul inhabiting the body?
        If you close your eyes, in what part of your
        body is your consciousness?

(…) I was afraid I would lose these critical forms.
        I don’t know how much it will appear when
        they speak with eacht other.

(…) What are the conditions in which you can
        legitimately not say something? I think my
        starting point is always this physical
        condition we're in.
        How to communicate that maybe?
