The power of language can both separate us and bring us together. This piece, which is based on Joseph Kosuth‘s masterpiece Three and One chairs from 1965, playfully capitalizes on linguistic similarities while highlighting cultural absurdities bringing about the question: could a pop icon, place to rest and a single noun have anything in common/share common ground? In this work the intended act of misinterpretation becomes the actual act of artistic creation.

“Your outdated ideas of what terrorism is have been challenged,” an unidentified, disembodied voice announces following the video’s first 45 minutes of random imagery set to minimalist techno music. “It is not your simple bourgeois notion of destructive explosions and weaponized biochemical agents. True terror lies in the futility of human existence.”
Sol LeWitt (1928 – 2007)
The artist may not necessarily understand his own art. His perception is neither better nor worse than that of others.
Banal ideas cannot be rescued by beautiful execution.
