Horizontal connections with Block_II Karen and Ash:
Hi Karen and Ash, your words back and forth are resonating with me, the very idea that as an artist, one is ‘dissenting by being’. That is what I am exploring, being… ‘outside the system’, ‘off the grid’ (no mains electricity – rainwater collection – compost toilets – burning olive wood for heating), ‘outside the norm’ ‘perverse’ – in the margins, that is my dissent. My making of work is part of the exploration but the ‘being dissents’. I’ve really enjoyed following your journey. With dissent, foggy mountains of Catalunya.’
I leave an image from a previous installation ‘Con-nec-ted’ 2014, comprising volcanic rocks on the island of Jeju, South Korea. Signed by the artist in red.
