He in itself: "I don´t know what I am; I don´t know what I mean; I don´t know what and for whom I create; I know neither the sense nor the reason of the origin of my previous works´ meaning, although the meaning is often recycled. It matters to me (suspiciously) less and less, who will understand and what will the one understand of my works; this is also applied to myself, I am a stranger to myself. After fifteen-years of intense, professional work in the field of art, somewhere in Central Europe, I have lost any sort of coherent identity. I´m slowly and dubiously coming to a conclusion that this is not a negative fact, however, I don´t know what to do about it."
