My first memory of collecting and organizing knowledge is from the age of six. In a new notebook, I wrote all I knew about my ancestors and the pyramids. Since it felt important, I buried it in the courtyard for people of the future to find and know what happened here.
I probably still do the same; Blog as Artwork on the Internet is The perfect art-media, where time – place – facts and fiction merge.
I dig in my memory for images and fragments of archetypes, some are also universal. This is where I can meet Euclid in a zen garden, or talk to William Kentridge about our life in the studio.
I am aiming towards a biennale dedicated to Ancient Alexandria Library.
Blog as Artwork is a tiny echo of what I see in my mind’s eyes: many artists creating personal mirrors to what was displayed at the ancient Library, digging within, finding and reflecting upon lost knowledge.
I try to find a curator, who will be interested to metaphorically revive ancient Alexandria’s library. To present the physical art in a biennial – parallely to a cleverly organized, and archived website, accessible for a everyone.
Books shall not be burned down again.
