I often take myself too seriously.
For example when I prepare for an art show or an art fair (as I am doing so now).
I could come aware of the situation if I loose my sense of humor and I torture myself with every single critique I have ever got. And what is more... I can fabricate new ones... till I get tired and finally .... stop. What a relief!
And then: a new life begins.
Slowly I get back the playfulness, the experiments, the humor.
So this is a therapeutic piece, a light-minded portrait.
I can recommend it if you don't want to be bloody serious.
