About the Show
“Tossed-out bedsheets, salvaged from the dump, reward us with the painting surfaces needed to further the understanding of existence & develop the bad bedsheet philosophy which results in the bad bedsheet existibility shows: part 1 an exhibit, part 2 a puppet show.
Existibility, the capability to exist, is in a bad state because of the fancy little animals who occupy & rule existence on one little planet in one little solar system. Existence, which yields life & life which grows ecstatically are now slumped into irreversible melancholy – unless the above-mentioned rulers change their ways.” – Peter Schumann
