Pandora's box of LOVE
collaged cardboard box - 19 x 19 x 3 cm
April - June 2014

Inside view of the box -
Turmoil of emotions. Death. Mould taking over. Brutality. The inner center still there but obscured.


"Dieses Gefühl: »hier ankere ich nicht« – und gleich die wogende, tragende Flut um sich fühlen!
Ein Umschwung. Lauernd, ängstlich, hoffend umschleicht die Antwort die Frage, sucht verzweifelt in ihrem unzugänglichen Gesicht, folgt ihr auf den sinnlosesten, das heißt von der Antwort möglichst wegstrebenden Wegen." Franz Kafka

Kafka answers: "Dieses Gefühl: »hier ankere ich nicht« – und gleich die wogende, tragende Flut um sich fühlen!
Ein Umschwung. Lauernd, ängstlich, hoffend umschleicht die Antwort die Frage, sucht verzweifelt in ihrem unzugänglichen Gesicht, folgt ihr auf den sinnlosesten, das heißt von der Antwort möglichst wegstrebenden Wegen."

I like the word umschung. Otherwise the quote seem a bit verzweifelt. Kafka is better in Swedish! Schwafka!

no, it is not desperate, i think. it is about answers we have in our mind before asking the proper question. about intuitions and the errors we don't see. fast assumptions that stick in our minds because we don't care to think properly.

yes – OK. We are lazy mental bums! True that Kat!
