Between no and yes

No and yes are opposites, yet they have in common that they are clear and distinct.
Between no and yes – or in the space between the undisclosed and the disclosed – we find the unclear, the undefined.
In this space transformation might take place. Nothing follows straight lines to a target, nothing is predictable.

We have cultures which honour/appreciate the undefined and the fluctuant, the undulating, like in Chinese taoism. “Nothing” has a value of its own, passivity and “non-action” are equal in value to activity and action. Oriental dancing emphasizes a similar volatile presence. Art, movements, thoughts, politics will all get a different perspective if one appreciates this aspect. I want to investigate what emerges in the space of the undefined where everything has to be before it is born.

When we swim in the ocean, we can just put on a mask and look down to find a world just as great as the world above. I believe the space of the undefined deserves a special study. I want to focus on the diffuse and the lingering.
With this exhibition I am trying to equip each of us with this swimming mask.

Welcome to the space between no and yes.
