Voilor se brûler, pouvoir se detruire. [Wanting to burn, able to destroy] In being able to re-horizon the connotations in human scale and perspective (of moral/sensual/ intellectual/cultural value), not a grid- locked, in-group isolation but a more stretchable, tangible view will enfold.
Are we still able to picture a ‘human perspective/view’ or are we stuck in a strategized, conditioned mission against ‘being human‘? Only by weaving the paint back and forth, investigate through the patterns into the fabric of “our reality“, we are to still perceive what is true about the ‘human’ horzion beyond being isolated and abstracted from a self-reducing view from ‘above’.
The porous, transparent, battered, draws the viewer inwardly, into the work and into oneself. Kumpermond does not offer definite shapes; she asks to observe and look again, to investigate and question once again. The attention is first drawn to the preliminary qualities of a character, the stories they could tell, the questions they might pose. There is space for the ambiguous and the "other", the variable.... One finds himself between being charmed and provoked, between being manifest and already vanished - this is a harbor for reflection...
If we succeed in crossing our fear, we do not need a final version of self. Nor do we have to defend it. Without fear, we know that it's good just as we are, at any moment. In this state we allow to connect and associate with the 'other', that we realize it being a privilege - not a confrontation but a chance - not to hold on to but to stay in motion, [a variable human].”
