Subjective terrorism
May 2008

This was a material-action at Kunstvlaai / Art Pie held in 2008 at the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam. I was invited by Kees de Groot and Viola van Alphen from PLANETART.

Subjective terrorism referred to a radical act of accepting diversity. It celebrated an undefined form of being with a subjective sculptural 'gesture' that disappeared in the actual scenery itself.

Influenced by the philosopher Merleau Ponty and his ideas about being available as humans to the complex diversity of our surrounding, he suggested that we cannot claim truth, or an absolute form and imply this on others.

This action was an attempt that says nothing and in an environment that places form in a central position it said everything at the same time, build from waste and other available materials.
