Sater/ Satyr

  • 1999
  • Bronze

For a long time this sculpture was like a skinless self-portrait to me. It represents an attitude – which I sensed in myself – of approaching the world with mockery as an attitude towards the Momento Mori. It’s a way of having fun what many people do. Are they trying to fight this ‘remember to die’? For me it is more like a counterpart to meaning: nonsens. It opens up meaning and questions it and puts things in perspective.
