(3) What do you think of your own works? (→ selected answers)











Vittore BARONI (I): - They are-were a part of my life, I never pursued a regular "art career" so my activities are not measured in terms of public success and acceptance, they are much more part of a private ritual (like mail art), because I truly feel and believe the official art world today is nothing but a commodity, a money game ruled by power elites not creativity and intelligence, and as such it does not interest me much.

Lilian A. BELL (USA): - The installation is a place for enigmatic states where transformation can take place. It consists of peculiar anecdotes in a dreamy staged world - is the event about to happen or has it already taken place? Within this ambiguity can my objects relieve themselves of past representations, or are they dependent on their pre-existing reality?

David BORAWSKI (USA): - Most times, whether the work comes out as had I planned or not, it is very surprising. Almost as if it is someone else's work. Knowing that the work will not exist after the duration of the exhibition, I tend to spend more time with it.

Bruno CAPATTI (I): - For the most part, in my work performance and installation are connected. Performance produces installation or installation is the space for the performance and performance alter this space. Contents of performance and installation are the communications and the "network" of interactivity.

Luisella CARRETTA (I): - I think I have on occasions succeeded - by bringing together signs and materials - in sending a forceful message urging the refocusing of man's attention on nature.

Luc FIERENS (B): - I think my own works are collective works because mail-art installations are collective consciences of images that are implantations in a slick highimage megaculture of today.

H. R. FRICKER (CH): - To be a person, in different social structures, is a sort of an installation.

György GALÁNTAI (H): - In my work I don't aim at completion, so these works are continuable, they can be connected to each other or even to other people's works. Each piece is an answer to a question that had been asked and they only gain importance if they find, "in a poetical sense, their geometrical place" (i.e. they are installed) in a correlation that is larger than they themselves are.

Miroslav KLIVAR (CZ): - My work is a contribution to meditative installation art.

W. Mark SUTHERLAND (CDN): - My installation work avoids acts of closure as it is concerned with the conundrums of human perceptions and communications.
