SELBST-LOS/SELF-LESS

WOLF KAHLEN

2000

"...Watching this process you may consider this as a decay, as vanishing life, the cutting off of self, in this case Wolf Kahlen's self, or as a ritual death. A global weathering out on one side and a rebirth on the other side. As we all rub off our shoulders off at matters and at beings we live with, or come into existence by the same instances. The artist philosophically, and this is actually, what he has been aiming for ever since I know him, demonstrates here the kicking-out of the ego, and the ego out of art. The given title SELBST-LOS carries this ambiguity: off with your ego, as an urge and: beeing without egocentrism already as a state of beeing. The final impossibility of total self-lessness is part of the game too...." (Peter P. Kajzar)
