Endless Field , 2017

What we, as humans, own in terms of true space and true place are our mind, and our conscious. When our senses meet the physical outer space, what we are actually doing is protecting our mind from the filth and poison we could encounter by restricting our mind. When the Artist succeeds in minimizing the effect of the outer world and the existential state, only then will he be able to access the core of his mind, opening a new level of consciousness. He will then have reached an infinite land.
”Endless Field is a 48-hour performance with no intervals, on the meditation practice. A desire of exploration to the depths of my mind, my thoughts, my memory. A journey. An effort to navigate step by step, in an indescribable darkness which harbor endless light sources. Holding on the words in a void with no directions. Maybe to get lost. Or the worry of re-birth.
I can not see or hear you. That is why I would like to communicate with you in other ways. please feel comfortable and free to do a lot of things that come to your mind. If you can reach out to my inward vogaye, you will be welcomed, be certain. I only ask for your silence. If you see see me part from my stone I am holding in my hand, understand that my mind is closed and I drifted into a state of sleep. In that case, I kindly ask you to wake me up and put the stone back into my hand, so that I can continue my journey into the endless field.”
