Stilles Gesicht / Silent face


Die Gesichter werden im Alltag ständig verzerrt. Die politische Situation malt Abscheu und Revolution auf ihre Züge. Angesichts des Zustandes unserer Gesellschaft, in der lebendige Werte zunehmend getilgt werden, verhärten sie sich. Und der Druck, den wir uns selbst auferledigen – es doch schaffen zu müssen – verkrampft die Gesichter noch zusätzlich und lässt Ausdrücke von Schuld und Angst zurück …

Unsere ursprünglichen Gesichter sind verschwunden, Gesichter, die nicht nur diese verzerrenden Emotionen widerspiegeln, sondern profunde Gefühle der Anwesenheit, der Verbundenheit und des Staunens …

Wie ist das erste Gesicht, mit dem wir der Welt begegnet sind? Mit welchem Ausdruck haben wir das erste Mal auf ein anderes Wesen reagiert? Wie sieht unser erstes Gesicht aus, an das wir uns erinnern können? Kann es auch jetzt hier sein?


Faces are constantly distorted in everyday life. The political situation paints disgust and revolution on its features. Given the state of our society, in which living values ​​are increasingly eradicated, faces harden. And the pressure that we take on ourselves to make it, cramps our faces even further and leave expressions of guilt and fear …

Our original faces are gone, faces that reflect not only these distorting emotions, but profound feelings of presence, connectedness and amazement …

What was the first face with which we encountered the world? Which expression was there when we first time saw another being? How does our first face look like that we can remember? Can it be here now?

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:
