Das Gewicht der Stille / The Weight of silence


Die Oberfläche der Dinge ist bis zum Erbrechen angefüllt mit Vorurteilen und Meinungen. Egal welche Bereiche: Kunst, Beziehung, Politik, Spiritualität, man kann es nicht mehr hören …

Wir glauben die Bedeutung der Dinge zu wissen, weil wir Begriffe dafür haben und Erfahrungen dazu, aber wir kennen es nicht wirklich. Da ist eine abstrakte Ebene unter der Welt, die wir zu kennen vermeinen, wie eine Tiefsee, in der Realitäten wohnen, die sich Bewertungen entziehen, die frei davon sind …

Wir können die Elemente, aus denen die Welt gestrickt ist, an der Oberfläche festnageln, aber nicht in der Tiefe. Sind wir wie ein Taucher im Sein unterwegs, in dem wogenden Gemisch aus Atmosphäre, Geräuschen und Szenen, begreifen wir, dass wir nichts wissen …


The surface of things is filled to the point of vomiting with prejudice and opinions. No matter what areas: art, relationship, politics, spirituality, one can not stand it anymore …

We believe we know the meaning of things because we have terms and experiences, but we do not really know it. There is an abstract level below the world that we think we know, like a deep sea, where realities live, that evade judgements and are free of them …

We can nail down the elements from which the world is knitted at the surface, but not at depth. If we are like a diver in being, in the billowing mixture of atmosphere, sounds and scenes, we realize that we do not know anything …

Autor: Briant Rokyta

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.
