Min Jeong Seo - To Live On, 2005
The stalks these flowers are already dried up but their blossoms are preserved and kept fresh by the medical infusin bags. The life-span of every living creature is limited.The infusion bags stand for the progress in medicine and the prolongation of human life.They somehow carry an ambivalent message as they refer to both death and life an the same time. Both states are immanent here. To preserve the beauty of the flowers artifically with the help of the infusion bags points out man’s inclination to repress the fact having to die and to postpone death.
peace without justice is no peace at all.
This reminds me of a very popular chant that I always say at protests “No justice, no peace. US out of the middle east”
“He couldn’t remember sleeping or eating. The words simply poured out of him. A stream that he could not control nor question where they came from. The words became form, the form became whole, and after two weeks, it was finished”
ماء مَدين .. وعَليك من النّاس أمة يسقونَ
وأنا دونَك أذود !
