Art consists of the togetherness of concepts, origins, structures and logic different
from each other.
In order to verify this reality in an extreme point of practice I had to bring things
together that are entirely alien to each other. But it was a fact that the things that
were the most unfamiliar to each other resulted from a coincidental togetherness.
"After a few trials 1 chose the theme 'the maps1 because they were the most uncontrolled
and completely coincidental subjects.
First I paint all around the subject, then I cut the districts made from plywood from the
map, and distribute them to amateurs, professional painters, and children, and tell them
to do 'whatever they wantr. Then I collect them back, and mount them on the map again
according to the numbers on their back , And I never interfere with them.
As a result, ail through history, painters were seeking the so charmed coincidence with
consciousness, and finally finding it.
I let the coincidence absolutely free.
