"White On White" (Video Projection)


Painting a white wall white or finding joy out of unseen, useless, illegal and void actions.
An attempt not to create some kind of 'art object' and counter the 'economical logics' that govern our thoughts .

"14. Since it is sure of its ability to control the entire domain of the visible and the audible via the laws governing commercial circulation and democratic communication, Empire no longer censures anything. All art, and all thought, is ruined when we accept this permission to consume, to communicate and to enjoy. We should become the pitiless censors of ourselves." Alain Badiou –Fifteen Theses on Contemporary Art

(Question: For you can see here a video-documentary and pictures, does it not undermines the idea?)
