"The residency itself and my artistic concerns there were strongly linked to the re-evaluation of the basic stuff of existence and to the acceptance of open-ended answers. I floated around the emptiness of Farrera, ghost-like, until I realized the unique opportunity that being an alien presented: to experience life at its purest, in the moment. The rugged landscape and its vast solitude brought to the surface the importance of qualities such as surrender and acceptance."
text by the artist Heini Aho in relation to her new exhibition in Helsinki.
I just read this and the line "acceptance of open-ended answers" has strong resonance to my now.
