FrontRoom: DAVID BIELANDER No, it is not!
We - human beings - perceive things solely in relationship to something else. As soon as a tiny shift in the context occurs, it is enough to make us perceive a thing differently and in a way that we have never seen it before.
Things do not stay as we perceive at first glimpse. It is the ambiguity, the multifacetedness of the nature of things. It is part of the conditions of our existence that it is an impossibility for a human being to arrive to definite truths, because truth is dependent on perspective. In that I materialise the ambiguity, the multifacetedness of a presence, I want my work to show me something that is the truth, almost in a transcendental way. It does not mean that I am capable. Of course I will fail in the end, but I flirt with the potency to make tangible something that is true.
