Source: Statement and CV by the artist in the format of a typed letter. Submitted for the exhibition, Unrecorded Truths. Dated 1986

From the text: “History is lies. Told unconvincingly to a convinced audience. I am not convinced. Mainly because the lies do not benefit me. The opposite in fact. They are there to steal - my past, my present, and my future; my self, and my relations with other people. By exposing the lies, I am trying to get a better deal for others and for my self.”
