Addendum of autumn 2021. Something has changed, is it the light in our eyes? The same fragments now arrange themselves differently, lose themselves differently, into larger and weightier constellations – is it because of the two strange years that changed everything? The two triptychs are new, two directly opposite counter-worlds. They speak to each other as we spoke to ourselves, as we were alone and full of forebodings.
The image of clouds first captures our gaze; a philosopher once said, “you can’t build clouds,”and yet, isn’t cloud building our main activity as dreamers, doesn’t it actually keep us alive? Namely, when inner movement no longer has a fixed centre and the search for it has been abandoned, one is close to the clouds. At the countless centres, whole worlds blossom and then languish again – an immeasurably joyful life.
This is confronted by quite a different being: stern, dark and with three faces. Its expression is unmistakable: here is something that was fading and has therefore faded away. Here we have thoughts, or rather, shells of thoughts. Discarded or frozen – it is a strange liberation to experience the past as the past. It does not weigh us down. We look up and notice: the light has changed. It is time for our gazes to be directed towards something that is now. Because now is a fragment which is everything.
