    • “Banned from the road”
    • In his words about the art-work “Banned from the road”: We are few participants on this track. Each of them sees me in a personal way. What does it mean? Do they divide me in separate persons? As many participants, that many persons inside of me? Forms a united, one-way road that goes from outside to inside, from the participants to me. It is forbidden for me to move along this road because I just cannot step out of inside and look on myself from the outside.
