“A thought transfixed me: for the first time in my life I saw the truth as it is set in songs by so many poets, proclaimed as the final wisdom by thinkers. The truth - that love is the ultimate and the highest goal to which man can aspire. Then I grasped the meaning of the greatest secret that human poetry and human thought and belief have to impart: The salvation of man is through love and in love. I understood how a man who has nothing left in this world may still know bliss, be it only for a brief moment, in the contemplation of his beloved.”—-Man’s Search For Meaning by Viktor Frankl
Can you say something about your love towards Marina Abramović art?
She is…hugely present and influential, I wasn’t familiar with her work but I got to make my little research and found most of her projects full of life and creativity plus woman seems to have powerful inner resources, it’s like…she lives for what she does with people, she seems infinitely dedicated and alive in this. I thought certain stuff were purely conceptual, you know? Certain notions regarding the human psyche seemed to me way too vague & untouchable, not so much in terms of understanding but in terms of actually transgressing the theoretical level upon which they can be discussed/approached. I think she somehow succeeds in carrying these notions into the most human sphere of conscience while maintaining her own vitality and simplicity in being, and that’s admirable. There’s this enhancing familiarity about her…Idk, she’s lovely
