Wildes Grau / Fierce grey


Wildes Grau rüttelt am Ende des Sommers. Am Fenster stehend spiegelt sich der Blick aus wunderbar wunden Tiefen, innig verwoben mit dem, was er sieht. Der Blick rastet in dem Ziehen der Jahreszeiten, gewinnt an Raum, findet sein zu Hause. Das Grau zerrt den Sommer aus den Dingen und treibt ihn in sanften, heftigen Strömen übers weite Land …

Das Land, in dem wir jetzt die Ressourcen unserer Kinder und Enkel verbrauchen, in dem Demokratie immer noch ein fragiles Experiment ist, das sich kaum gegen die Sucht nach Geld und Macht behaupten kann. Das Land, in dem Politiker und Medien nur Angst schüren müssen, uns eine feindliche Welt vorgaukeln müssen und schon werden sie gewählt und ihre Egotaschen füllen sich …

Das ruft uns auf den Plan, das Beste in uns zu finden und es zu verwenden für die Welt, in der wir leben wollen. Ganz wir selbst zu sein, ist ein politischer Akt. Schönheit zu kreieren, ist ein politischer Akt. In diesen Zeiten ist selbst Freundlichkeit ein politischer Akt …


Fierce gray shakes the end of summer. Standing at the window, the gaze out of wonderfully sore depths is reflected, intimately intertwined with what it sees. The gaze is resting in the dragging of the seasons, gains space, finds its home. The gray tears the summer out of things and drives him in gentle, intense streams over the vast land …

The land where we now consume the resources of our children and grandchildren, in which democracy is still a fragile experiment that can hardly compete with the craving for money and power. The country where politicians and the media must only stir up fear, have to fool us into a hostile world and already they are elected and their ego pockets fill up …

This calls us to find the best in us and to use it for the world in which we want to live. To be completely ourselves is a political act. To create beauty is a political act. In these times even kindness is a political act …

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.
