Stilles Feuer / Silent fire

Draußen leuchtet der Schnee in der Nacht. Drinnen wirft ein

Eingeborener alles, was er hat, in das stille Feuer. Die weißen Kolonialisten haben den Spirit aus der Welt vertrieben, sogar aus so manchen Indigenen. Das weite Land wurde mit Dingen verstellt …

Der Eingeborene lauft durch die Gassen des Egos und sucht nach Sinn, bleibt aber nur an Ablenkungen kleben. Das Wollen vertreibt allerorts das Haben …

Einzig in den Momenten des stillen, offenen Feuers werden die Gespenster der Vergangenheit erlöst. Und jedes Mal flieht ein Ding aus dem weiten Land und Spirit strömt – immer gern bereit – wie Wasser in die Vertiefung …


Outside, the snow shines in the night. Inside, a native throws everything he has into the silent fire. The white colonialists have driven the spirit out of the world, even from some indigenous people. The vast land was obscured with things …

The native runs through the alleys of the ego and seeks meaning, but only sticks to distractions. Wanting everywhere drives away having …

Only in the moments of silent, open fire are the ghosts of the past redeemed. And every time a thing flees from the vast land Spirit flows – always willingly – like water into the depression …

Briant Rokyta is an Austrian artist based in Vienna. He follows the principle of PERMANENT CREATION in performance, drawing, painting, writing and sculpting and in providing lectures and workshops. PERMANENT CREATION is another way of viewing the world. Not through the rational mind but through art, through being, which is constantly creating itself: Each moment is creation and oneself is intimate part of it. Human society is also changing, a new level of relatedness arises and the age of separation is sinking. I find it helpful and joyful to use art in such a way to support this process in favor of a world that is more beautiful, integrative and playful. The best way of doing so is to show this potential of art, in various garments and as a way of life together with fellow artists. For further information please check out:
