“The luminous crack” in HAPPENLAND

Here, in Happenland, artists show works that are based on a personal, and happily respected, brainwave. A brainwave is a witty idea which just happens to be art and that is why it is going to be carried out without mediations, without any thinking about its meaning, its interest, or its being appropriate. The only thing the artist does is to imagine how the idea will be when represented in any format whatsoever (painting, e-book, performance).

Art sit down on the brainwave, regardless of the artist’s intention.

And, as an artist, it is my method for creating. This is why I have included myself among the artists in Happenland, and have done so with a work titled The Luminous Crack, a version of The Silent Breach (2013).
