"In art it is hard to say anything as good as: saying nothing." Ludwig Wittgenstein 

Originating from the ancient Greek "Krisis," meaning "choice" or "judgement," crisis was once a term imbued with positive connotations, signifying a moment of introspection and decision-making. However, in contemporary discourse, it has adopted a negative hue, synonymous with turmoil and instability.

In my artistic inquiry, I confront the notion of creative crisis—the void left by conceived but unfinished works—by embracing the inherent potential within chaos. Through an iterative process of evaluation and meditation, crisis transforms into opportunity, heralding change and clarity. Yet, this transformation remains elusive, leaving artists suspended in a state of creative paralysis.

To navigate this labyrinth of uncertainty, I've crafted a mantra—a series of meditations designed to overcome various forms of artistic blockage. These meditations transcend individual contemplation, inviting viewers and curators to actively engage in the artistic process, thus becoming integral participants in the exploration of creative impasse.

"It is hard in art to say anything" serves as a meditation on the interplay between psyche and art, failure and opportunity, and the symbiotic relationship between artists, curators, and audiences. Through a collaborative effort with Shivum Sharma, Anna Szczykutowicz, and Chris Aiken, the work manifests as a sequence of three sonic installations within a blue room—a space designed to provoke introspection and dialogue, echoing the complexities of the human condition.
