Narcissus Process II

I dreamt of a river that was my dream.
On its surface, I saw my face reflected,
Like that of narcissus, placid, serene…

And I wonder:
How is it to be trapped within the thin layer
That separates two substances, two states.

To have one’s likenesses
Forever banned from physical existence,
A mere dispersion, pure image…

I was irresistibly drawn to that surface,
My thoughts and my longing melting away.
I felt ashamed for my desires…

So I turned away.

Reaktionen zur Kunsthalle / Leistungsschau

UPDATE: Ein Video ist aufgetaucht, und zwar hier: www.art-in-berlin.de – Darin nehmen die Macher der Veranstaltung Stellung zu ihrer Initiative.

Leistungsschau, Kunsthalle am Hamburger Platz, Berlin-Weißensee, Juni 2011

Hier mal eine interessante Reaktion (Tagesspiegel – Berlin) zur Leistungsschau in der Kunsthalle am Hamburger Platz.

“Auch das gehört zur Realität, zu Berlin und seinen Künstlern und der Leistungsschau, wenn man sie wortwörtlich nimmt. Künstler zu sein und davon leben zu können ist eine Leistung.” Anna Pataczek
