LOVE, FROM HATE – 12 letters about visible and invisible pain
I will visit 12 places in the city where I have met anxiety in various ways. I have written a letter to the 12 places. The letters are left in various ways in the 12 places and can subsequently be read and found by all.
A letter has an intimacy over it. It has a lived history in the dark as well. Now that story gets light. Only this way it can be released and I myself can move on. I call it “Love, from hate – an exchange of letters for better or worse.”
ABOUT THE ARTIST
I always work with my own history as a starting point. Anxiety, violence, rape, hatred and self-hatred have been part of my work, whether as a writer, playwright, screenwriter, or visual artist.
