Where 2 Seas Meet (2016)


But when at last they came to, the place where two seas meet, they forgot their fish, which made its way into the water, swimming away at will… Moses said: “This is what we have been seeking.” And they went back the way they came…

Going on a journey is a sign of a new attitude, an attitude of humility and poverty, which conveys a desire to seek a new destinations. The place where two seas meet, where the dead fish comes back to life, that is the place where the soul dies, but also the place where it is reborn.

Tradition are rivers. A river has different sources on different mountains, but the waters come together in a main stream, which goes into side stream, and so on… The river itself with all the side-rivers is the source. And the real value of a tradition is its diversity.

The different rivers of the East come also into Europe today, something new is coming to our lives and gives meaning, as a Dutch poem indicates:

Kuan Yin, who seriously, an lovely, just continues to empty the seas with a thimble, without bitterness or irony… is this maybe the only possible sweet answer…?

A new and simple answer of a newborn child? The art of emptying the sea… like the art of dancing?

Item #3

  • Tajuk:In – between – us
  • Sinopsis Item / Nota Program:

    The in-between-us IS not; the in-between-us originates, comes into being. Identity is at the service of this event. The in-between-us comes into being to the extend that I can meet myself as an ‘I’ that because of this creative process turns to distinctiveness and identity as ‘organons’, as tools. Identity and distinctiveness are organs for the ‘I’ that emerges.

    The ‘I’ addresses to the otherness of the other with the intention to see com-passion (eros) shining, in the same way as it can be experienced with oneself. It’s a kind of epiphany.

    The in-between-us is everywhere where this can take place. As a celebration where distinctiveness and strangeness acknowledge each other in new forms of connection.

Item #4

  • Tajuk:Can’t Look Through Your Eyes
  • Sinopsis Item / Nota Program:

    “We look at the world through a window… and the cleaner and more transparent the window is, the less we see the glass and the more enthusiastic we become about what we see outside.

    I do not see my own window I look through it and my neighbor must tell me: ‘ You are looking through a window!’ And then I say to him: ‘But so are you! You are also looking through a window.’ And then we compare what we can both see.

    We see more or less the same landscape, but perhaps we look at certain aspects of it differently. Perhaps I might even say: ‘ I see it like this.’ But we still need each other to see the complete picture…”
