This installation of video, photography and performance explores the notion of communication, not only as a visual language, but communication as a set of relationships between art and life, war and peace, spectator and creator, memory and language. Thinking it as a long-distance phone call - trying to make sense of the other receiver's non-sense, replacing the phone with organic, singular activity. The walk is not to make sense out of something seemingly senseless. French contemporary thinker, Jean-Luc Nancy, has already written that the Sense of the World has come to an end.

This book is in effect a documentation of a man walking alone through Europe. Each page is a fragment of the bigger picture and the book is mapping together all the events, experiences and narratives without telling a linear story or representing a particular view - except that of my own. My position is akin to that of a passer-by constantly trying to situate himself in a moving environment. Each intervention is another fragment of the story that is being invented and a challenge to the narrative and economic structure of Western representation. A movement through images and the memory of them experienced in a non-chronological non-linear way. What is left as a remainder of the ultimate adventure is pictorial vestige representing the uninterested and unnoticed from areas of Europe at the turn of a century. Fragments and visual souvenirs captured like postcards that are too late, recorded after or before the event. Postcards that do not inform us about an essence, but a mere existence. The (un)eventful and indifferent produced through photography and video that is neither narrative nor abstract but in media terms remains elusive, generating and destabilizing viewpoints made up of alternating fragments of reality, memory and imagination. read more
