    Honouring a quote from Carl Jung:
    "But no one can judge history in terms of right and wrong, because one-half of mankind is wrong, every man is half wrong. Therefore conflict resides in his own soul, but man is blind and only knows his half. But man appears to see the outer quarrel, not the one within, which alone is the wellspring of the great war. But before man can ascend to light and love, the great battle is needed" (P.145). ~Carl Jung, Liber Novus, Page 253, Footnote 220."

      ¿Yo, reducida a una palabra? ¿pero qué palabra me representa? Algo sé: no soy mi nombre. Mi nombre pertenece a los que me llaman. Pero mi nombre íntimo es: cero. Es un eterno comienzo permanentemente interrumpido por mi consciencia de comienzo. [Clarice Lispector. Un soplo de vida.]

    IMR is my creative spiritual gift for well-known gone Lithuanian artist Marija Terese Rozanskaite (IMR - In Memoriam Rozanskaite). 
    Her works and world-view still inspire me. This painting talks about the reflection of perceived but not comprehended empathy. It is like the map which helps to understand and better orient in human relationships with oneself - deep inside we all want to be safe.

    This video shows a woman opening a window on the 15th floor of a public housing project and throwing her bra below, the cups of which have been replaced by gigantic sleeves (164 feet) with gloves attached to the end. After these sleeves fall and unfold they eventually reach the bottom of the building. Inspired from the tale of Rapunzel, a princess locked in a tower who throws her gigantic braid out the window for a prince to climb and save her, this video depicts social themes of poverty and desperation. This video won an award in September 2014 at Union Street Gallery, Chicago, IL for the national juried exhibition ''Material Matters."  It was also shown in July '14 at Kalopsia Gallery, Edinburgh, Scotland for the selected group exhibition ''Contextiles-isation,'' and in December '14 at Gibney Gallery, NY, NY for the exhibition ''Making Space." It's currently showing at Tributary at Verum Ultimum Gallery, Portland, OR, USA.

    Experimental video poetry from anthology “An Artist Abroad” | Portugal 2015 | 3 min 10 sec

    Last poem in the cycle of video poetry “An Artist Abroad” shows the symbolic transition of artist Valerie Wolf Gang from believing in civilization to escaping back to nature. In the final weeks of her stay in artistic residency in Portugal she made an overview and reflection of what she learned during her one year experience away from her normal routines and environment. The main thing she points out and also shows in the poem is her wish to change the feelings of people towards the system and its limits which cut our freedom and make us modern slaves. In the poem she symbolically tears it down and frees herself from the concrete cage of civilization. Her escape back to nature is a suggestion for everyone to do in order to be free once again. The solution is not just in the physical transition but also in the mind: in order to do so we shouldn't take the system seriously and we should realize it’s artificial. Smile and you will see that this new life is amazing.
