Behind language

performance, 2017


  This photo series was made of me during a performance at the Symposion of Lake Velence, as I'm emerging from the lake covered in a sheet with texts written on it, texts borrowed from the creation myths of various cultures. This time the thoughts of the French philosopher Maurice Merleau-Ponty inspired me: "The meaning is between the words, they are not related to the individual words. "The inner content of the meanings moves from the physical gestures to the signal system in which it is realised". (Merleau-Ponty, 1961
