Disciplines: Mediakunstenaar, Mixed media/interdisciplinair kunstenaar

Omschrijving werk

My work centers on language. Within my work, language is interpreted as all the means, methods and tools that man uses to share his experience of the world with others. I am interested in the way the mechanisms we use to communicate, name and describe our surroundings (physical, cultural, perceived) define our perception and understanding of them. Specifically I am interested in the gap between the mechanism of description and comprehension. This gap derives by an intrinsic dynamic of the elements that compose such mechanisms. Within my practice this gap is the room from which the possibility of generating and playing with meaning arises. What follows from that is that at the core of my practice is not a focus on the production of artifacts but on translating and creating possibilities for cultural meaning through a multidisciplinary and curatorial activity.

Omschrijving In the frame: "First Table of Recommendations. This table applies to this specific situation, in this location and at this time. Yet this is by no means a set of rules intended to change the way you behave. Here follows a list of words and constructs you should, possibly, avoid. You should but you do not have to. The present recommendation is equally valid for both singular and plural form of any of these nouns. The same should be intended for their equivalent in any of the languages you might be fluent in. Notice that while this selection is far from being complete, it is not an arbitrary one." […] follows list of words […] "It is suggested that you understand and comply to the content of this table of recommendations. Be aware that what presented in this paper will not, in any manner, diminish the value, importance, elegance or refinement of the way you articulate yourself. You will be as fluent, proficient and skilled in the use of the English language as you have always been. Accordingly you will be, if English is not your first language, in the use of your mother tongue and of any other language you might have learnt so far, according to the vastitude of your vocabulary.
