Oleg KulikPressionSuPression, performance

Performance is when you can really produce some reality-on-art action, when reality begins to work as it would never otherwise work.
Where is the art product? There is a history, but there is no fact that you can leave
after you. There is no idea of eternity, there is nothing out of you, you have finished the action – the art has ended.

Boris Kadin (Via Negativa), What Joseph Beuys told me when I was lying dead in his lap, solo performance

“Nobody is born as an artist. You can just die as an artist.”

“There are three basic categories of artists: those who have earned the theme they are dealing with; those who might earn it, and those who definitely have not earned their theme. In my view, the artist can only be worthy of the theme if he unconditionally takes it into himself and provides evidence of it with his own body. To confirm this thesis, I will need a knife tonight.” According to Boris Joseph Beuys is an artist beyond all categories. The only one able to talk about Beuys is “the dead rabbit” which at the opening of his first independent exhibition lay in his lap and listened to Joseph Beuys interpretation of the work created by Joseph Beuys.
