The phrases in the text works seem to be a hotchpotch of disconnected profundities and ironic remarks, splinters of the human condition.
Of two bigger paintings one has phrases in the first-person singular and the other in the third-person singular, commenting artists’ life.
Modest as the exhibition is, the idea of language and its meaning and feeling expands from the purely visual language of the installation, along the paintings to a video in which jokes about artists are told in two different ways.
