Vow of Silence

December 15 to 22, 2014, “Vow of Silence” Art Residence Aley, Beirut, Lebanon.

Vow of silence is usually a religious vow, taken in a monastic context. It comes in different names, forms and contexts, more or less rigid in implementation. While some vows require absolute silence, others practice limited speech. Practice is integral in many religions: Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism and some Christian traditions. Vestal virgins in ancient Rome were bound to severe silence for long years. Trappist monks and nuns avoid any access speaking, they set up a particular sign language to help them go by their daily activities. Pythagoras imposed a strict rule of silence on his disciples.

Creating is a challenge.

Going back to the Balkans is a challenge.

Living outside of the Balkans is a challenge.

Facing the past, living now and looking forward to a great future is a challenge.

 

No political art in the Balkans is a challenge. No political art if you are born in the Balkans is a challenge.

Art Personal is a challenge.

BEATRICE

In 2011, young curators from Naples, Mariano Ipri, Giuseppe Ruffo and Pietro Tatafiore of largo baracche project, organized a group show inspired by The Divine Comedy.

“When i was invited to create a work for a group show on dante alighieri’s masterpiece, The Divine Comedy, i was assigned the part when dante meets beatrice in purgatory and she is to take him to paradise. it is so hard for a young artist to measure him or herself against the art history giants, so i was panicking, but from the very beginning, i knew that my interpretation of Beatrice was not going to be a conventional one.”

Fuck Art Let’s Dance

In 1968, Andy Warhol said that in the future, everyone will be world- famous for 15 minutes. That future came and went, and today, that 15 minutes has become but a few seconds.

“In the rite, there is not tradition and no theory”, wrote Igor Stravinsky in Chronicles of My Life, Paris 1935.

This quote transported me directly into the philosophy of performance art in the 70s, when performance strived to distinguish itself as a valid art form, like painting or sculpture, even though it was not linked to a particular set of skills.
